Who says you have to holiday somewhere exotic in order to relax?

Whilst the weather is ever uncertain, you must not let that stop you from embracing this much adored time of year. There is so much to do and so many places to explore. The UK is home to majestic landscapes, historical locations and beautiful beaches awaiting your arrival and one location in particular is the famous New Forest National Park, our enchanting home.

So how can we tempt you to our neck of the woods? 

Here are 5 New Forest events in the area you won’t want to miss this summer:

There’s motor cross displays, show jumping and a grand parade scheduled for the show’s main attractions as well as livestock, small animals and bird tents.
