Have a Hauntingly Good Time at Beaulieu this Half Term.
22nd – 30th October 2011.
Family tickets to be won!
Look out for some strange happenings in the neighbourhood at Beaulieu this Halloween – it will be quite a spectre-cle! Have a ghoulishly good time with haunting activities throughout half-term, 22nd – 30th October.
In the National Motor Museum, you can follow the Halloween Trail and see some of the 250 vehicles on show, from early motor cars to Land Speed Record Breakers. Be ‘shaken but not stirred’ by the James Bond Experience, with genuine cars and boats from the Bond movies.
Become a part of the world’s greatest car show with Beaulieu’s popular ‘World of Top Gear’ attraction. Enter the Top Gear Enormodrome to see actual cars from some of the presenter’s most ambitious challenges, hear the stories behind them and enjoy clips of some of the best Top Gear moments.
Have a ride on ‘Wheels’, a pod ride through 100 years of motoring history and take a trip on the high-level Beaulieu Moan-o-rail which passes through the roof of the Motor Museum.
Beaulieu is reputed to be one of Britain’s most haunted places and ghosts have often been seen and heard in its 13th century Abbey and at Palace House, home of the Montagu family since 1538. On selected days, talk to real ‘Ghost Hunters’ in the haunted Abbey Cloister and hear Spooky Stories from the costumed guides in Palace House. Children can follow the Halloween Hauntings Trail, take a lucky dip in the Witches Cauldron and be given a Gruesome Face Painting.
