Discover the Great Indoors… and our Great Outdoors too

The New Forest is only 89 minutes from London. And now, until April 30 (excluding half-term and Easter) it costs just £15 off-peak day return and £5 for children on South West Trains. And not just from London, either – this new offer applies to travel there from any station on the South West Trains network.


Worried about the unpredictable weather? Don’t be! Enjoy the New Forest’s great indoors – try a luxurious day spa or lunch or afternoon tea at one the top-rated hotels, inns and restaurants. There are dozens to choose from.

Take a trip to the pretty seaside town of Lymington and while away some time at St Barbe Museum & Art Gallery. Or the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu and get up close to some of the world’s most important and beautiful cars and tour the Palace House, a Victorian gothic-styled country home.


If the rain holds off, you can enjoy a taster of our iconic great outdoors too. Take the children to visit our world-famous ponies, roaming free over the frosted heathland. Watch the first signs of spring unfold in our ancient woodlands – they’ve only been here for 1,000 years. Enjoy a bracing walk along our coastline – it goes on for more than 40 miles.

However you want to work it the New Forest is perfect for your getaway day.
