Set in the heart of the New Forest, Beaulieu is an award-winning family day out where one great value ticket grants you access to all these attractions:

The National Motor Museum has a stunning collection of over 250 vehicles. From Formula 1 racers to vintage classics, the museum captures the wonderful history of motoring. Visit Jack Tucker's Garage, which recreates the sights, sounds and smells of a typical 1930s country garage.

Ever wondered what happened to the amphibious Toyota or the Saab stretch limo from Top Gear? The World of Top Gear features the actual cars from some of the TV show's most ambitious challenges, such as the Lotus Excel submarine car from the Top Gear Bond special. Attraction highlights include the Top Gear 'Enormodrome' which recreates the feel of the Top Gear studio.

Visit the beautiful Palace House & Gardens to discover the history of this Victorian styled country house and explore the tranquil Beaulieu Abbey to learn about the inhabitants of this once-bustling complex.

Uncover the truth behind Beaulieu's covert wartime role in the Secret Army Exhibition.

Plus see sweeping views of the park from the high-level Monorail or climb aboard to enjoy the sights from the replica 1912 open-topped London Bus.

Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary

Visitor Attraction
023 8028 3141 023 8028 3141

Spotting deer in the New Forest isn't always easy, but at Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary there is a purpose built viewing platform overlooking a large meadow area where a herd of fallow deer regularly gather.

Deer viewing at Bolderwood isn't guaranteed but the herd are fed daily by the local New Forest keeper, between the months of April and September, so the deer are more than happy to remain in the main meadow and are very accustomed to human presence. Feeding time can be between noon and 3pm.

Several of the animals are white, which is quite an uncommon colour for fallow deer to be. The platform provides an excellent photo opportunity although a zoom or telephoto lens is a very good idea, if you want close-up shots.

The large grass lawn at Bolderwood car parkThe wooden viewing platform is just a short distance from the main Bolderwood car park. Adjacent to the car park is a large flat grassy Forest lawn, perfect for kicking a football around or grouping up for a game of rounders! In fact, Bolderwood is one of the most popular spots in the New Forest for spending a sunny day and the area can become a bit congested during the better weather and holiday times.

While the deer sanctuary is the main attraction at Bolderwood, there are also graded walks and a large picnic area amongst the tall trees, alongside which is a New Forest information cabin (not always open) manned by a Forest Ranger. The picnic area also has decent toilet facilities.

If you don't want to stray too far from your vehicle, it's an ideal place to take a packed lunch and just enjoy the forest atmosphere.

Of course, if you want to see more of Bolderwood the graded walks take you through the surrounding woodland. Each one starts and ends at the picnic area and follow gravel tracks. There are three walks of 1/2 mile, 1 mile and 2 miles and all are very easy going.

CLUECRYPTED

ClueCrypted is an exciting real life escape game designed for groups of 2 to 6 players. Based in New Milton in Hampshire ClueCrypted offers a personal escape room experience designed to test your mind and wits.

ESCAPE ROOMS

Locked in a room with just 60 minutes on the clock, your team must solve puzzles and work together to find the key to escape. The clues and their answers are all around you. Can you use your eyes, ears and mind to get out in time?

PHASE ONE - OUTBREAK

Deadly virus outbreaks have simultaneously broken out all over the world. Scientists at the Pandemic Avoidance Research Centre (PARC) have been working tirelessly hoping to find a cure.

With almost 80% of the worlds population infected, the virus is spreading unlike anything we have ever seen before.

PHASE TWO - CAPTURE

You have been captured by research scientists working for the PARC hoping to find a way to stop the spread of the virus. Regular antidote appears to be having no affect in eliminating the destructive and violent symptoms.

With still little idea how the virus is spreading from person to person, the scientists’ only hope is to perform tests on live human subjects.

PHASE THREE - ESCAPE

Two weeks have passed since your capture. The relentless screams from the room you can only see labelled as 'The Laboratory' made you quickly realise you need to escape.

There was an emergency at the other side of the building and the staff have gone. Will you make it out in time?

Come and discover this artillery fortress built by Henry VIII at the seaward end of a spit. Commanding the entrance to the Solent, it offers one of the best views in England.

It played a part in the imprisonment of Charles I in the 17th century and defended England from invasion threats in the 19th and 20th centuries. Exhibitions around the castle provide you with a chance to piece together Hurst Castle's history.

With an audio tour to help you navigate, fantastic views of the Isle of Wight from the top of the Tudor keep and plenty of open spaces for the children to explore, it's a great day out for the whole family. There's also a cafe offering homemade food.

Access to the castle is a leisurely ferry ride from Keyhaven (charges apply) or a 1.5 mile walk along Hurst Spit (please note this is a shingle spit). Cafe is open daily and dogs on leads welcome.

Open weekends only during winter months, weather permitting, 10.30am - 4.00pm. The Castle will not be open for Christmas Day or Boxing Day. Tel: 01590 642344

Hythe Pier, the Hythe Pier Railway and the Hythe Ferry provide a link between the English port city of Southampton and the Hampshire village of Hythe on the west side of Southampton Water.

The New Forest gained a new entrance with the Hythe Pier being sold as “a point of departure for the forest”. The route received Royal approval on August 13th 1888 when Prince and Princess Henry of Battenberg accompanied by Princess Alice of Hesse stepped onto the pierhead from their yacht Elfin bound for a long circular tour.

Many famous people have used the pier, including King Alphonso XIII of Spain, and Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany.

King George VI rode the pier train prior to reviewing the embarking the D-day troops in 1944.

In 1887 Mr. James Percy, (so began the association of the Percy family with the pier and ferry), succeeded Mr. Fry who was lessee of the pier.

Mr. Percy was a direct descendent of Sir Henry Percy, first Earl of Northumberland and father of Harry, called HOTSPUR.

Hotspur became the name of the family’s ferryboat and four others have proudly followed – Hotspur IV still being used at the present time.

Hythe was the home of Sir Christopher Cockerell, the inventor of the Hovercraft. A memorial to his achievement can be found in shady waterfront gardens.

Normandy Lane, Lymington, SO41 8AE Lymington
Nature Reserve
015 9067 4656 015 9067 4656

Hampshire County Council purchased this beautiful area of coastline between 1973 and 2006 to protect its unique historical and wildlife heritage. The reserve covers nearly 200 Ha (500 acres) between the mouth of the Lymington river and the village of Keyhaven. The landscape we see today has been shaped by more than 2000 years of human activity. If you look carefully there are signs of a major industry which once thrived here.

The adjacent mudflats and salt marshes outside the seawall are leased by Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust and form their Keyhaven and Pennington Marshes Reserve. Together these two reserves ensure the protection of an extensive area of coastal habitat. Both reserves lie within the New Forest National Park, recognising their importance for both wildlife and people.

You can obtain good views of the marshes and their wildlife from the Solent Way which runs the length of the reserve. There are also several attractive circular walks on local footpaths which cross the area.

The reserve is open every day of the year for quiet informal recreation on designated paths and tracks.

Management of the reserve: Control of water levels, salinity and grazing are crucial. During the summer cattle and ponies from the New Forest graze the reserve. Grazing animals help control scrub and invasive species such as rush. Many of the specialist plants and insects depend on wet ditches and ponds being of the right salinity. A system of sluices and tidal flaps are used to control flooding and water flow around the reserve.

Specially created outdoor pens provide a natural home to the rare Sand lizard, Smooth snake and the poisonous adder, which can be diffuclt to see in the wild as they are so secretive or rare.

Many of the reptiles are most likely to be out and visible on warm days. If you wish to visit on a rainy or cold day you may need to be quite patient in order to see the animals.

The New Forest Reptile Centre actively encourages the conservation and re-introduction of these animals across the country.

Ringwood Brewery was founded by Peter Austin in 1978, a man who is revered as "the father of British Micro-brewing".

Ringwood Brewery's first brewhouse was in a former bakery in the old station yard brewing Best Bitter and Fortyniner for a handful of local customers. 1979 saw the production of Old Thumper, which has since become the flagship brew.

In 1986, having outgrown the Minty's yard premises, the brewery moved to its present site, ironically the location of the old Tunks' Brewery which ceased trading in 1821.

Today the brewery is able to produce circa 40,000 barrels of its renowned and distinctive beers. In addition to Best, Fortyniner, and Old Thumper, we now brew the blonde Boondoggle and the deliciously warming XXXX Porter.

Ringwood Brewery also boasts its own Brewery Store on site selling a full range of its beers as well as a wines, cider and souvenir merchandise. These goods including our bottled beers are available from our online shop. The Store welcomes thousands of visitors each year. The company's commitment to continuous improvement by investing in plant and equipment and training and development of staff has been recognised by a number of local and national business awards.

0844 357 2329 0844 357 2329

SS Shieldhall is a heritage steamship based at Berth 48 in Southampton.

“Shieldhall” is unique as a time capsule providing a working example of steamship machinery both above and below deck, typical of the cargo and passenger ships that plied the oceans of the world from the 1870s until the mid 1960s, by which time they were all but extinct.

The ship is of special interest as she is built on the classical lines of a 1920s steamer with a traditional wheelhouse; the hull is of riveted and welded construction and this unusual feature is representative of the transitional phase in British shipbuilding when welding took over from riveted practice. The hull has a slightly raked bow and cruiser stern. The teak decks and emergency steering position aft add to the classic effect. Shieldhall was effectively obsolete mechanically at the time of her launch having steam machinery representative of the late 19th century at a time when the diesel engine was coming into its own.

Now believed to be the largest working steam ship in Northern Europe, she is owned and operated entirely by voluntary effort.

There are live music and lunch events whilst at sea, staged in a Saloon or covered awning-deck. Real ales and ice cream are available too. A commentary is offered on most trips, offering an insight into the history of the Docks, pointing out the ill-fated Titanic Berth 44, and the sights and sounds of Southampton Water. A highlight of your visit will be the chance to discover Shieldhall's Engine and Boiler Rooms under steam, and the opportunity to meet the Captain on the Bridge.  

When not cruising, Shieldhall is an ideal base for events - a popular way to celebrate birthdays and special occasions; company meetings and AGMs.

Welcome

The Raft was born following the request from one or two individuals who were suffering terminal illnesses and had never managed to ‘meet’ a horse in their lives and were keen to do so. The resulting connections with an old, retired horse called Chloe were both moving and clearly beneficial. Thus there is potential for helping people from many walks of life to find restorative and nurturing support from connecting with horses and nature.

We all know that if only we could stop the world spinning, take time out and breathe the fresh air we would benefit from the break. It is hoped the Horse Raft will facilitate this. Even if only a few people join in; making friends with a horse or two while enjoying time and learning a bit about the New Forest, it will have succeeded in its aims.

The Horse Raft CIC is Community Interest Company which is a legal form of social enterprise and a not-for-profit organisation.

William the Conqueror set aside the Forest for hunting more than 900 years ago as his 'Nova Forestra' or 'New Forest' and centuries of grazing by deer, ponies and cattle have shaped the landscape.

William would probably still recognise much of the Forest as the same place he hunted wild deer and boar. Today it is a wonderful area to explore by walking, cycling and on horseback. Enjoy your visit and please help to keep the New Forest National Park a special place.

Southampton’s most important historic building, Tudor House reveals over 800 years of history in one fascinating location at the heart of the Old Town. The timber-framed building facing St Michael’s Square was built in the late 15th Century, with King John’s Palace, an adjacent Norman house accessible from Tudor House Garden, dating back a further 300 years. Tudor House gives a unique and atmospheric insight into the lives and times of both its residents through the years, and of Southampton itself. It appeals to visitors of all ages and interests, who find the family-friendly activities, interactive technology and fascinating displays a winning combination.

Café

Tudor House Café overlooks the delightful Tudor Knot Garden. It serves a delicious range of refreshments all day, from fresh coffee and biscuits to tea and fabulous cakes. Most of our range is sourced locally, using the finest ingredients. The café is a perfect location for your freshly made lunchtime sandwich, snack or that sweet treat. We offer children’s sized portions and high chairs for younger visitors.

The Café roof is of particular interest, being green … literally. It has a sedum and wildflower roof, which assists insulation and is also enjoyed by the bees. You can enjoy the Tudor House Café without needing to pay for admission to the rest of the building, so give it a try for your next lunch date or business rendezvous. The downstairs Georgian Room overlooking the garden, is available for corporate hire for meetings or training sessions on weekdays (Tues-Fri). Our cafe can also cater for working lunches.

Shop

Tudor House shop is the perfect place to pick up a souvenir of your visit or a special gift for family or friends. We have a lovely range of quality Tudor and Victorian inspired gifts and books as well as lots of interesting and reasonably priced souvenirs and treats suitable for children with a little pocket money to spend. You’ll love our range of tapestry items and ‘pocket’ garden herbs and flowers. You may also be tempted by our delicious range of liqueurs and preserves, or just want to pick up one of our unique postcards so you can write and tell your family and friends what a great time you had at Tudor House.
