the beach bus

Ride the Beach Bus to discover the hidden gems of the coast and countryside. The Beach Bus runs from Hythe Ferry to the Georgian market town of Lymington, stopping at popular attractions along the way. You can also enjoy great discounts with your ticket.

cycling

The New Forest offers over 200km waymarked cycle routes, much of it off road and traffic free. The station at Brockenhurst allows you to bring your bikes and get straight out into the forest or if you don't have bikes with you pop in to one of the many cycle hire centres.

walking

We have more than 140 miles of tracks, where you can enjoy easy walking and see thousands of free-roaming ponies, donkeys and cattle. The forest has too many official walks to list, and the chance to make your own way across its thousands of acres is virtually limitless.
