From beautiful scenery to free roaming animals, fascinating history to scenic coastline, there is something for everyone in the New Forest National Park.
The welcoming landscape of the New Forest has lots of pretty villages. Lyndhurst is the natural ‘capital’ of the New Forest. Brockenhurst has the main bus/train interchange and legends of dragons, witches and smuggling are abound in the village of Burley.
Minstead is an idyllic little village located in the centre of the New Forest, with a gorgeous Village Green, a great village pub, lots of things to do and see, and is also the burial place of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes.
Known as the northern gateway to the New Forest, Fordingbridge has a medieval stone bridge with its seven fine arches providing a crossing point for this small ancient town on over the River Avon. You will find water sports and some great nature reserves nearby.
