This centre is a real surprise. It's so good for children and adults alike: well laid out with excellent displays and inter active spaces. Coupled with an excellent gift shop it is well worth a visit.it has been enhanced by the new coffee/tea shop.

This is a lovely centre which explains a lot about the New Forest, his history and wildlife. There are interactive activities aimed at children and is a great place to spend an hour or two.
