Beaulieu

Beaulieu Abbey is one of England's best-known tourist attractions - the family seat of Lord Montagu of Beaulieu, and of the National Motor Museum. But it began its life eight centuries ago as an abbey of the sheep and cattle-farming Cistercian order of monks. The site occurs throughout THE FOREST, and is the scene of a romance between a monk and a Forest woman in 'Beaulieu'. (See also Bucklers Hard).




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The first escalator England had ever seen was installed at Harrods in London on November 16th, 1898 to much fanfare, fascination and fear ! The moving staircase was such a strange and scary experience for people that Harrods began offering smelling salts and Cognac at the top in order to calm people after their terrifying ride.
