Things to do in the New Forest

This page is where you will find an up-to-date listing of things to do in the New Forest Hampshire UK. As I find an event, I will list it on this page - that could be daily, weekly. So if you are looking for something to do in the New Forest then bookmark this page for future reference. It would be very useful for all readers if you could leave a Comment at the bottom of this page. Maybe a recommendation of an event  or whatever. Anyway, I do hope you enjoy the beauty of our New Forest here in the South UK.

Email me at with your up coming Event
and I will post it on this page for my many Readers to see. No charge!

The New Forest Wildlife Park
Enjoy a wildlife adventure in this lovely park, set in 25 acres of unspoilt woodland in the lovely New Forest. Get up close to the Sika, fallow and roe deer that roam freely throughout the park and watch the excitable otters squeaking and squealing at feeding time. There are many amazing animals to see, from several species of owls and otters to wolves, bison, wild boar, red deer, muntjac deer, Scottish wildcats, lynx, wallabies, water voles, adders, foxes, polecats, pine martens and ferrets. Children will love the harvest mice scurrying around their mini home and the new “Go Wild” Adventure Playground is now open.
