    We visited in August and there were a lot of children here. We couldn't find a great deal of information and the information we did find we found to be too simplistic in some cases and way to intense ...  more »

  • This centre really is worth visiting. The displays are informative and interesting, giving a great overview of the New Forest. There's a huge amount of information here, much about farming practices and management of the National Park, so possibly not of interest to everyone. The short film is worth a watch though - we learned how many people are still managing the animals and the land today.
  • Lovely information centre in a prime location adjacent to the large, but chargeable car park. There is a tourist information centre, a gift shop that has lots of lovely gifts & informative books to purchase, a local crafts exhibition, plus a free museum to gain so much knowledge from about this very historic area of the New Forest & surrounding areas, the staff could be happier, but overall a wonderful experience!
  • Nice place to spend a few hours. Get there early if you want to enjoy it being quiet as you will get families and group's later in the day. The longest walk took about an hour or so. Spotted a few dear which was nice. Worth utilising the BBQ area if the weather is Clement.
  • Lovely area, staff are friendly and free entry, love the history x
  • Situated perfectly in the town this visitor centre offers a great source of information for the area. Also close by is one of the best cafes around with an incredible range of milkshakes!
