I hope I'll see a few of you there. I only managed to arrange for a "free day" last night and normally would have ordered advance tickets long before. Didn't this time because I wasn't sure if I could go - or how many would come with me. Disappointing to find that the advance tickets (which don't have to be posted anymore - simply printed off) are now not available so the only option is to pay more - and queue - anybody know if this means using a different entrance as well?

Not able to come in a Mini unfortunately so won't be "displaying" ;) .

Safe travelling everyone.

If buying ticket on the day I think you have to use the main entrance.

The ticket doesn’t cost that much more and the queue isn’t usually very long as the marshals are very efficient. Theres also normally a photographer at the entrance taking pics of the cars as they come in, which can then purchased.

When attending Beaulieu in a non-Mini/MINI.....I have always followed the Mini show signs and paid on the MCR show gate and been directed by Marshalls to the non-Mini parking area within the show grounds. Normal Beaulieu public visitor parking is less convenient for the show and is usually a more expensive entrance ticket at the main reception area. On only one occasion a 'jobs worth' official wrongly told me Minis only to MCR gate but my MCR membership card was enough for him to back down after consulting a MCR marshal on the gate.

Photographer is just beyond the entrance Mark and captures a pic of your car driving in not sat in the (very small) queue

You don’t have to buy them and TBF event photographers probably struggle to make a living with free pics on social media etc.

Any way, I’m sure it will be a great day.

Niall.
