For those of you unaware, Beaulieu is a family visitor center in Hampshire, offering attractions like estate grounds, a palace house, and the National Motor Museum, not to mention several cars featured in the popular British auto show. The World of Top Gear just got a revamp with several new attractions, and was recently re-opened by Chris Harris, co-host of the new post-Clarkson show, alongside The Stig and Lord Montagu.
