There is something for all the family in New Forest National Park, whether you’re looking to take a relaxing stroll or cycle through the forest or just enjoy the wonderfully picturesque surroundings and wildlife.
New Forest National Park includes one of the largest remaining tracts of unenclosed pasture land, heathland and forest in the heavily-populated South East of England. New Forest National Park was designated a national park in 2005 to give this outstanding landscape the highest level of protection and to preserve it for the nation to enjoy for generations to come.
There are plenty of different routes and paths for visitors to take to make each trip to the forest different with plenty of picnic sites and toilet facilities available. There are also guided walks that take place throughout the year with local experts who will share some history about the forest with you.
Of course, no trip to New Forest National Park is complete without a visit to the New Forest Centre in Lyndhurst, hopping on the New Forest Tour or Beach Bus or taking an autumn stroll at the Walking Festival. Check out the events calendar and do call in to one of the visitor information points to help you decide where to go.
