Beaulieu, in Hampshire, has revealed details of its upcoming season, featuring group tours, new galleries and events.
A collection of 28 Lalique glass car mascots will be on show together for the first time as the centrepiece of The Luxury of Motoring, a new display which opens early in 2018 at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu.
This gallery will showcase a selection of the most luxurious cars ever built and will tell the story of their design, the people who owned them and the chauffeurs who drove them.
Tours of The Luxury of Motoring will be available for groups.
