1. Victorian Christmas at Beaulieu Motor Museum

16th December - 1st January 

See what the Victorian Montagu family members would have been at Beaulieu doing as they prepare for the festive season of 1889. Pose for photos beside the impressive life-size Gingerbread House in visitor reception, before heading out into the Beaulieu grounds to see one of the largest outdoor trees in the New Forest decorated with over 10,000 lights! 


 2. Hampshire Farmers Market

Savour in the delights of Hampshire’s finest local produce including home reared meats and freshly baked bread cakes and perhaps even try some pickles, chutney preserves and coppice goods. There is something for everyone to try and the best part about the Hampshire Famers Market, is that it’s free!


3. Winter Paddling

November - February

Enjoy a 2 hour guided tour of the Beaulieu river, one of the most picturesque stretches of water on the south-coast. Beaulieu River is part of the Beaulieu Estate and is one of the few privately owned rivers in the world.
