New Forest, Hampshire

The Beaulieu Estate, home to the National Motor Museum, was also secretly home to British and overseas members of the Special Operations Executive (SOE) who completed their training there. The Secret Army Exhibition gives an insight into the training schools, instructors, secret agents and unsung heroes of the SOE, many of whom did not return from occupied Europe after leaving Beaulieu.

Find out about their secret missions and don’t miss the learning zone for younger visitors. Your ticket also gives you entry to the motor museum including the World of Top Gear exhibition, and Palace House, Beaulieu Abbey and a ride on the monorail.
