Get ‘hands-on’ at Beaulieu this February half-term with a wheel bubble balancer and balloon car challenge in the National Motor Museum, costumes and toys in Palace House and medieval building at Beaulieu Abbey, all taking place between 11th-26th February.

Pick up your Hands-On Half-Term Pass Book and fill it with stamps at each of the activity stations around the attraction, taking a pit stop break for a chocolate milk drink reward at the Brabazon Restaurant.

Honk the horns and try on goggles as you test early motoring clothing, handle historic motoring objects and take a close-up look at the artefacts, photographs and documents in the museum.

Balance a wheel with the bubble balancer by placing weights evenly around a tyre. Then create your own balloon-powered car and try racing it in the balloon car challenge.

Visit the monk in the 13th century Beaulieu Abbey and build an arch like a medieval builder in the historic setting. Then dress up as a Victorian and play traditional games in Palace House.
