In the heart of the glorious New Forest, Beaulieu is one of the South's top visitor attractions.

You can also visit Palace House and Gardens, home of the Montagu family since 1538, the remains of Beaulieu Abbey and World of Top Gear where you can see some of the vehicles from Jeremy, James and Richard's most ambitious challenges. Ride on the high level Monorail or climb aboard the replica 1912 open top London bus for a fun way to see Beaulieu's sights.

Yes, you can. They cannot enter the museum building itself, but there is an area outside to tie them up. We took ours and there is plenty of outside space for them, they loved it.
