The Motor Museum

Or as I thought of it – the masculine museum. Today we went to Beaulieu which is home to an enormous collection of automobiles across the generations and, at the moment is looking after a collection of vehicles from different James Bond movies. Dad is a huge Bond nerd so naturally he was itching to go. We had a big leaflet in our cottage on Beaulieu and it looked like a decent day out so we gave it a go today.

Dad really enjoyed himself and headed straight to the Bond section first. I thought it was good, and I do enjoy seeing a collection of different items but honestly…. it was all a little lost on me? I thought I might have liked it more because I do like nice cars hell we even had a vintage car in our family before that I was interested in at times…but it was kind of just okay to me.

I was pleased that Dad loved it. Plus for someone who is passionate about cars and vintage vehicles Beaulieu is heaven on earth. It was all kind of Top Gear-ish and not really my kind of scene.

I went inside the museum briefly, had a quick glimpse around and was happy to walk straight back out again.

There is however, more to Beaulieu than just a motor museum. There were huge grounds, gardens, an abbey and a stately home to look around. And so we spent the majority of the day at Beaulieu in the end Smile
