The centre is in the main car park of Lyndhurst. It is a great place to get information and see the museum of the history. A lovely place to start your walk!

We liked the small modern museum where the children can look/feel/open/puzzle/act/play and learn about the New Forest. Our children (Ages 2 and 4) really liked it.

If you are visiting the New Forest it is worth calling in here it is free but they would like a donation. The history of the area is well explained and there are some interesting exhibits there I'd also a cafe although I did not go in it looked very nice if I'd have had more time.
