The New Forest Tour Returns

The ever-popular New Forest Tour bus will be calling at Shorefield Country Park throughout summer to take passengers on a magical journey through New Forest landscapes.

The tour is a totally unique way to explore the area and the on-board commentary brings the journey to life, giving you all the information you'd need to know about the history and characters of the New Forest.


The New Forest Tour runs from Saturday 6th July to 8th September in 2019, so make sure you're on board for the green way to explore the forest.


There are 3 routes that the New Forest Tour takes, all providing a unique journey through different parts of the National Park. Jump on board outside Shorefield Country Park, which forms part of the Blue Route, to easily access the wonders of the New Forest without the worry of navigating through traffic or finding somewhere to park.


The Green Route - Makes a journey through the idyllic woodland scenes in the south of the forest before stopping at the beautiful Exbury Gardens. The tour then makes its way onto Beaulieu National Motor Museum. Don't forget to show your New Forest Tour ticket on entry and you'll get 20% off at both these attractions! This route also links you to Hythe and Southampton with stops at popular destinations such as Lymington, Brockenhurst and Lyndhurst.


The Red Route - Takes you through the more open landscapes of the forest and makes its way through Burley, where you can sample some tasty treats at Burley Fudge, before heading on to Ringwood Brewery. There's also chance to stop of at Longdown Activity Farm and the New Forest Wildlife Park who are also all offering you 20% off entry with your New Forest Tour ticket. Other stop-offs include Godshill, Ashurst, Lyndhurst, Ringwood and Fordingbridge.


The Blue Route - Brings you along the scenic seaside and makes its journey past The Sammy Miller Museum, great for any motorbike enthusiast, before eventually heading back to Shorefield Country Park at Milford on Sea where you can relax in comfort in your very own lodge or caravan after a fun-filled day. Other great locations on this route include the coastal village of Keyhaven, Burley and Barton-on-Sea.


You'll have one ticket for the tour but that doesn't mean you have to stick to one route. You can swap from one route to another all on the same ticket, giving you three journeys for the price of one! Change over at Lymington, Brockenhurst, Burley and Lyndhurst.

There's also a great range of cycle routes in the New Forest, so if you're keen to explore on two wheels you can even bring your bicycle on board at no additional cost and hop on and off at different stops, making it great for the environment. The tour is also great for the local community, reducing traffic and encouraging people to leave their cars at home. You're also welcome to take your dog on board!


We're delighted to be selling tickets to the New Forest Tour at our New Forest park receptions - pick up yours from Shorefield Country Park or Lytton Lawn Touring Park! You can even view the timetable online so you know exactly when the tour departs from our park and plan your day in advance.
