Autumn in The New Forest
The New Forest comes alive with rich reds and golden hues under the autumn canopy making it the perfect excuse to come and explore what this beautiful seasonal show can offer.
Last year brought one of the most impressive displays of autumn colours in 80 years - to rival even the Canadian fall - due to the New Forest's unique mix of ancient, ornamental and native trees. Expectations are high again for this year.
