The New Forest Brockenhurst and Events

The other main town in the New Forest is Brockenhurst (on the Waterloo-Bournemouth line) which over the years has expanded from a small, sprawling, village to a residential town of some size and a favourite place for visitors. The New Forest itself is best enjoyed at a leisurely pace, walking across the heaths or through its wooded paths. There is ample provision for picnickers and for pulling off the road into shady places with tables and benches. There are lots of tiny villages to explore in this intriguing part of Hampshire. Riding and trekking stables are all over the forest, golf at Brockenhurst, Lyndhurst, Bramshot and Burley. Camping is only allowed on certain sites.
