New Forest is a region of southern England that’s home to heathlands, forest trails, wild ponies and endless natural attractions, as well as New Forest National Park. In the region’s southeast, visitors will find the National Motor Museum with a collection of vintage motorbikes and actual F1 race cars. More natural attractions can be explored at Exbury Gardens & Steam Railway, where you’ll find tons of exotic flora and get the chance to ride a vintage steam train. Kids enjoy visiting New Forest Wildlife Park, where they can see everything from otters to owls to real live wolves.

    The St. Barbe Museum and Gallery offers displays detailing the area’s history, and the rotating exhibits are constantly being updated so that there’s always something new to see. Lymington is a quaint seaside town just across the water from the Isle of Wight featuring cobblestone streets, charter boats and old-world-style pubs, as well as the annual Lymington Seafood Festival every August.
