THINGS TO DO & SEE
Our Guide to a Fun-filled Forest Summer
The summer holidays are here, so take off your home-schooling hats, gather the family and head to the forest to enjoy the great outdoors and a well-deserved summer staycation. Whether you’re travelling to join us or if you’re one of our New Forest neighbours looking for the best ways to fill the next six weeks, then continue reading for our ultimate family-friendly guide to the New Forest.
There’s nothing like a great day out, and there’s nothing we recommend more than heading to one of our local attractions, which we believe are some of the best in the country! With that in mind, we’ve rounded together our 5 favourites.
From the wide high street to the woodland trail, explore the peaceful haven of Buckler’s Hard village. Discover the history at the Maritime Museum, take a tranquil boat trip down the beautiful Beaulieu River and keep the little ones entertained when you join Buckle and Bailey, the shipyard cats, as they explore Buckler’s Hard on the fun family quiz trail.
The easiest way to travel around the New Forest is on one of the National Park’s open-top bus tours – Simply hop on and off wherever you like and catch the next tour, or switch between routes, all on the same ticket. Hear stories of the people, places and animals of the New Forest with their audio commentary – with characters, sounds and music bringing the view to life. You can choose to ride open-top through the treetops and experience the New Forest as you’ve never seen it before.
Whether you’re travelling on local transport or visiting any of our local attractions, please remember to stay safe by following the latest government guidelines.
We can’t wait to welcome you back to the forest this summer.
