New Forest Guide, National Parks Guy

The New Forest National Park is situated in the South of England right next to Southampton, so getting here shouldn’t be a problem. While you are here, there will be pleanty to see and do though. If you stay in Southhampton you’ll get to see the nearby Portsmouth ship yards and Beaulieu Abbey, as well as Bronze Age barrows and castles.

The spectacle though is obviously the park. The New Forest Ponies are well known, so look out for them. They are a native breed to the British Isles, they have even set the road speed in the area to 40mph and have the right of way!

The New Forest s diverse in its landscape too and recognised as such. With bogs and moorland, forests and Woodland, this is a place you’ll want to spend some time at. Look out for the Fallow Deer, Kingfishers, and the Snakelocks Anemone.

There is plenty to do here, so look at the local events before you go (The New Forest)  and at events in the National Park (New Forest National Park Events). From a canoe Easter hunt to Ghost hunting in October, there is a great choice. Oh and if you are the sporty type, then make sure to check out the Marathon in the New Forest happening in September too.
