New Forest Visitor Information
Wild horses won't be able to drag you away from the New Forest once you've experienced its peace and fallen in love with the forest's idyllic glades, ancient woodland, open moors, heathland and cliff top walks.
Escape to a world a million miles from your everyday life where ponies, cattle, donkeys and deer roam free. . . all just 89 minutes by train from London Waterloo arriving at Brockenhurst Station.
In 1079 when William The Conqueror named the area his 'new hunting forest', little could he imagine that nearly 1000 years later his 'Nova Foresta' would still retain its mystery and romance. The New Forest has a variety of interests for everyone.
Travelling to the New Forest is made easy with great transport links by coach or rail. By road exit M27 at Junction 1, signed Cadnam and head southwards into The New Forest. You can see more information on our travel pages.
