New Forest Tour

Come along for a ride on the New Forest Tour bus. We will hop on and off and explore the heart of this magnificent heath and forest landscape.

The wide open landscape with vistas fading towards the horizon, the dense woodland with its ancient oaks and beeches, the wealth of flora and fauna, is the indefinable magic of the New Forest. The New Forest, one of Britain’s newer National Parks, was set aside as a royal hunting area by William the Conqueror in 1079. It is a precious place of great natural beauty, and a unique way to explore it is on these open-top bus tours.
