Then there is also the family home complete with interesting memorabilia.
And the restored monastery, complete with display about how it functioned through history and the herb garden which a lot of research is being done to find all the medieval uses for the herbs that are planted there. They also have an exotic garden with unusual versions of plant species such as giant rhubarb.
As well as the historic vehicles, there is a monorail to take people around the grounds.
Decent tearoom - gift shop with some things truly unique to Beaulieu and ice cream stand in the further reaches of the grounds.
The Lord takes his duties to the area seriously and the church inside the grounds was closed to public as there was a wedding taking place.
Lovely picnic spots near the lake.
All in all, well worth the visit, but allow yourself at least a good four hours more if you have boys who will be drooling over everything from the latest Jag to the Sunbeam Sprinters from a bygone era - Rolls, Bentleys, Ferraris and Lamborghinis, you name it, they've got it.
