Whether cycling across open moors, horse-riding beneath a canopy of forest or sipping lemonade in a remote pub, "slow" is the only way to enjoy the New Forest. The villages have distinct characters: Lymington, the town with a yachting slant, Brockenhurst, where animals parade the high streets, Burley, with its link to witchcraft, and Fordingbridge, a charming small town on the banks of the Avon. This guide offers local insight into the best ways to enjoy Britain's smallest national park.
Emily Laurence Baker is a freelance writer who has written numerous articles about England and other locations for The New York Times, The Washington Post, and many other publications.
