The county boasts a rich cultural heritage, varies coastlines,vibrant cities, bustling market towns and unspoiled countryside, making it an ideal destination on the "English Riviera".
The weather in the area tends to be better and generally warmer than in other parts of the country.
The New Forest is a region of astounding natural beauty, boasting ancient woodlands, large open heathlands, picturesque water-ways and miles of cycle paths and walks. There are plenty of welcoming, friendly pubs, and restaurants in the area, offering hearty traditional fayre, and locally brewed ales. All around the Forest you will come across the ponies, donkeys and cattle that graze freely on the great expanse of heather and grass land. Perhaps you will be lucky enough to spot some of the shyer inhabitants, the deer, who try their best not to be seen against the back ground of rolling heathland and deciduous forest.
