Visitors can expect a right royal welcome to the delightful village of Lyndhurst.
Known as the capital of the New Forest since William the Conqueror established it as a royal hunting ground in 1079, Lyndhurst has been visited by kings and queens staying at the Royal Manor throughout the centuries.
There's no better starting point for visitors than the centrally located New Forest Museum, which gives a unique guide into the forest's history and heritage. Towering over the skyline is the pre-Raphaelite church of St Michael and All Angels where the grave of former Lyndhurst resident Alice Liddell, Lewis Carroll's inspiration for Alice in Wonderland, can be found.
Lyndhurst offers a wide range of shops, cosy tea rooms, old world pubs, cafes and fine restaurants to discover.
Nearby attractions include the fascinating New Forest Otter, Owl and Wildlife Park and the fun-filled Longdown Activity Farm.
