The name Lyndhurst is derived from the Anglo Saxon 'Lindhyrst' meaning Lime Wood, suggesting the New Forest was far more the lime wood than it is today.
It was William the Conqueror who, in 1079, designated the area from the River Avon in the west to Southampton water as his ‘new’ forest and his royal hunting ground. There are many people put off visiting the area because they think it is literally a new forest. In fact, it’s one of the oldest forests in the country.
Lyndhurst in the heart of the New Forest has been the ‘capital’ of the forest since the time of William the Conqueror. It’s now a delightful small town where the New Forest Museum is located and where you’ll find plenty of shops, many of which are locally owned.
There’s also the Reptile Centre, always popular with little boys. Here you’ll find the snakes, lizards, frogs, toads and newts that live in Britain. The Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary has a raised platform from which you can watch the deer grazing.
As you might expect, there also plenty of opportunities to enjoy the pleasures of the forest; hire a bike or check in to one of the stables for some horse riding through the forest.
