Beaulieu Boat Jumble at the National Motor Museum
The annual Beaulieu Boat Jumble is taking place this Sunday 28th April 2013 at the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu. Situated in the beautiful New Forest National Park, the Beaulieu Estate has been home to the boat jumble for some 36 years now.
The Beaulieu Boat Jumble is one of the biggest in the country and this year it has 1000 stands of both new and used nautical goodies for sale.
The Boat Mall is relatively new to the jumble and has products from leading marine manufacturers including trailerable boats, dinghies, motorboats, clothing and accessories.
If it’s a second-hand boat you are looking to buy, then pop along to the Boat Mart to see nearly new crafts for sale.
Tickets to the Beaulieu Boat Jumble cost £8.50 for an adult and £6.40 for a child if purchased in advance (plus a £1 handling charge) from the Beaulieu website. Tickets purchased on the day will cost £9.70 for an adult and £7.50 for a child.
The ticket will also give you access to the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu Abbey and Palace House and gardens, and at a great reduction off the usual standard ticket prices normally payable to gain entry to these attractions.
The motor museum is well worth a visit when you have spent all your hard-earned cash on new fenders and forestays. The Bond in Motion exhibition is still running and who wouldn’t want to see the iconic 1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III from Goldfinger or the buzzing autogyro, Little Nellie, from You Only Live Twice.
The Abbey and Palace House should not be missed either, and for all you WWII history buffs there is a very interesting Secret Army exhibition, detailing the training of secret agents by the SOE around the Beaulieu Estate during WWII.
Opening times for the Beaulieu Boat Jumble are 9 am for the BoatMall and BoatMart and 10 am for the jumble. There is ample parking at Beaulieu but it can get quite busy so try to get there early to avoid the queues.
