Beaulieu Named Best Large Visitor Attraction in England
Date Posted: 21/05/13
The 2013 VisitEngland Awards for Excellence took place last night (May 20th), recognising the country's top tourist destinations for the 23rd year running.
Anyone thinking of taking a short break in the UK will therefore be interested hear that Beaulieu in Hampshire was named best large visitor attraction in England.
Located in the New Forest National Park, the abbey was originally founded by Cistercian monks in 1204 and is now home to the National Motor Museum which features a truly world-class collection of vehicles telling the story of British motoring.
Among the top displays currently on show at Beaulieu is a display called Bond in Motion, which is the world's largest collection of original vehicles from James Bond movies, with 50 in total.
The exhibition will be running until January 2014, and the attraction makes for a great day out for anyone staying in Southampton, Winchester or Bournemouth hotels.
