Beaulieu (pronounced ‘Bewly’) is a small village located in the south-east corner of the New Forest National Park in Hampshire, England. It is part of the 7,000-acre Beaulieu Estate, and home to the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu Palace House, Beaulieu Abbey and Buckler's Hard.
 
Centred around the High Street, the red brick village has a population of approximately 850 inhabitants and has remained largely unspoilt by progress. Many of the old buildings contain modern businesses such as Gift Shops and the Beaulieu Chocolate Studio.
 
Beaulieu has a primary school, post office, village hall, cricket pitch and a parish church in the Beaulieu Abbey ruins. It also has free-roaming donkeys and New Forest ponies wandering through the High Street.
 
Situated at the head of the tidal reaches of the Beaulieu River, it is a favourite stop for visitors to the New Forest, and birdwatchers keen to get a glimpse of the Dartford warbler, European honey buzzard and Eurasian Hobby.
 
There are approximately 350 properties in Beaulieu Parish, the majority of which are privately owned. The Beaulieu Estate covers much of the parish and has been the home of the Montagu family since 1538.
