The New Forest

London, United Kingdom

Located a mere two hour drive from London it is perfect destination for anyone traveling the UK. From the moment you enter the New Forest national park you are surrounded by forests, commons, and a large number of walking/cycling trails. Look a little harder and you’ll realise that there are wild animals roaming free – think horses, cows, and even the occasional pig. The New Forest consists of many small villages and towns which are worth a visit, namely: Burley, Lyndhurst, Lymington and Beaulieu.

Once you’re here there is so much to see and do, hiring a bike and hitting the trails to really get the most of out your trip – even better, make it into a bit of a pub crawl. Talking of pubs, they would be my biggest recommendation for food and drink, just about every town and village has one. If you’re visiting in summer then it is highly recommend bringing a tent and camping for the weekend. The New Forest Water Park is also one of the best activities for summer. Alternatively, if you come in the colder months, bring your layers and wellies for a walk then head to a pub to warm up by an open fire.
