The vast green expanse of the New Forest is a magical place. It's also one of the largest remaining fragments of England's ancient forest, and it’s home to some 350 species of wild animals. This diverse landscape has been inhabited for centuries by humans, who have shaped it in their own image ever since they arrived in Britain over 10,000 years ago. The New Forest National Park offers all sorts of adventures - from walking through herds of deer on an early morning stroll to exploring historic ruins or discovering rare plants that are only found here. With so much to see and do, you could spend your whole life exploring this incredible area before you know it!
