The River Cruise is now finished for the 2023 season.
Discover history & wildlife
Originally granted to the monks of Beaulieu Abbey by King John in 1204, the rights and responsibilities of caring for the Beaulieu River later passed to the Montagu family. Their careful ownership has created a river which is largely unspoilt and a haven for wildlife.
An engaging commentary will reveal the fascinating history of this unique river as well as the creatures that inhabit its riverbanks.
