There will be fantasmagorical Chitty-themed fun this October half-term at Beaulieu with activities to celebrate the much-loved musical film and a last chance to see the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang 50 years exhibition.
A Chitty trail will lead visitors around the attraction from 27 October-3 November, where they can hear storytelling in Palace House and join in with Chitty themed crafts. A Chitty reconstruction can be seen in action as it is driven around the grounds of the attraction and a set of cards collected from Living History characters around the site.
It is also the final opportunity to see the Chitty exhibition in the National Motor Museum, which includes an original screen Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, the Humber 8hp driven by Truly Scrumptious, Lord Scrumptious’ rare Austro-Daimler 27/80 Prince Henry, the original Child Catcher carriage, the wonderfully inventive machines of Rowland Emett, original film artwork and Chitty memorabilia.
Chitty October half-term activities are included in a general admission ticket to Beaulieu, which includes entry to the National Motor Museum, World of Top Gear featuring new cars from the latest series, On Screen Cars, Palace House, the Secret Army exhibition, Beaulieu Abbey and the grounds and gardens.
