The ‘capital’ of the New Forest, Lyndhurst is the bustling heart of the forest. It’s the starting point for many walking routes heading out onto the open forest and has plenty of pubs, teashops, cafes and restaurants for you to refuel before or after your walk. You’ll also find the New Forest Heritage Centre in the main village car park.
Walking routes are a short distance from the village centre. The iconic Bolton’s Bench is a popular draw to see the famous New Forest ponies and it’s also the starting point for our walk taking in Pondhead Inclosure and along with Ridge with views over White Moor.
Our Brockenhurst-Lyndhurst loop walk is a great way to explore both villages and the surrounding countryside and forest.
