Beaulieu Festive Fayre
A fun, festive day out for friends and family in the stunning grounds of Beaulieu, home of the National Motor Museum.
The Beaulieu Festive Fayre will celebrate this magical time of year. Your day will be full of delicious seasonal food and drink, street food and tastings to tempt the tastebuds, joyful carols and live bandstand entertainment from West End singer, Adam Christopher-Rhys, the Santa Babies Duo and local choirs. You’ll be able to get hands-on with festive workshops, and there’s Christmas shopping galore with more than 70 artisan makers and local producers selling a wide range of gifts, from jewellery and candles to cheese and spirits, plus children’s activities and Father Christmas who will be handing out small gifts from a vintage vehicle from the National Motor Museum’s collection.
Festive Fayre tickets include full entry to all of Beaulieu’s attractions, indoors and out. Visitors can experience the splendour of a Victorian country house Christmas at Palace House, the Montagu family home since 1538, with its towering Christmas trees, elegant decorations and roaring log fires, costumed staff readying the house for the festivities, and garden and grounds. There’s the world-famous National Motor Museum to enjoy with its fine collection of cars, motorcycles and motoring memorabilia and On Screen Cars, the mile-long ‘Skytrain’ monorail for a bird’s-eye view of Beaulieu, the Secret Army Exhibition marking Beaulieu’s WWII history, medieval abbey ruins, and historic Clock House art gallery.
Children will find plenty of fun at the Beaulieu Festive Fayre, with face painting, Christmas storytelling, eats, treats and crafts and a festive trail, with time to explore Little Beaulieu, an exciting wooden adventure play area and replica of Palace House, featuring secret passageways, a treetop boardwalk and zip wire, not to mention hot refreshments on hand for parents and carers.
