Sightseeing Bus



Take an open-top safari with grandstand views of the scenery, animals and villages of the New Forest National Park.

Tours run daily, with a choice of three routes: Red (the wild northwest), Green (the beautiful southeast) and Blue (the coastal southwest).

From the top deck you'll enjoy tree-top views of the National Park, with roaming animals, wide open heaths and ancient forest. Special audio commentaries tell the stories of the people and places of the New Forest - with characters, sounds and music bringing the view to life. On the open-top Tours you'll get a bird's eye view of the landscape and a better chance of spotting the beautiful animals of the New Forest - including deer and rare birds, pigs and donkeys, and of course the famous ponies.

You can hop-on and hop-off wherever you like and catch another bus later on - or switch between Tour routes - all on the same ticket.

Walk or cycle part of the way and then jump back on the Tour (up to four bikes carried free). There's a great network of cycling and walking tracks

There are easy bus, train and ferry links to the New Forest from surrounding towns and cities with free bus and ferry travel on some routes

The Tour has now finished for 2017 and will be re-starting Summer 2018.
