The Beaulieu Monorail is a monorail linking the National Motor Museum to the Palace House. Part of the monorail line actually enters the museum building, allowing passengers to see the automobile collection from above. Originally part of a Butlins Holiday Camp, the monorail was moved to its present location in 1974. The cars were originally of a streamliner design, but were modified to allow for more passenger space.[1] It was the first monorail in England.[2]
