If you don't know the New Forest, begin here! If you do know it, I bet you will still find something new!

Centrally located in Lyndhurst next to main car park (parking charges apply). We visited on a wet half term day and found it packed with various aspects of New Forest life, plenty of things for children, fact sheets and interactive. Also house a New Forest Information point and local history library. Toilets.
