Thanks to William the Conqueror, who set it aside as a royal hunting ground in 1079, the New Forest has been protected by ancient laws for over 900 years. Situated in Hampshire on the south coast of England, it was given National Park status in 2005, helping to further conserve its captivating landscape.
It is Britain’s smallest national park but offers a wide range of terrain to suit the taste of every walker - ancient woodland, empty heather-clad heath, captivating coastline and many streams and rivers.
The 30 walks in this guidebook use well-defined tracks and paths to visit interesting historic sites, colourful gardens and picture-postcard villages. They cover all areas of the New Forest National Park and can be shortened or lengthened to suit walkers of all abilities.
We are always grateful to readers for information about any discrepancies between a guidebook and the facts on the ground. If you would like to send some information to us then please use our Feedback form. They will be published here following review by the author(s).

This guide contains extracts from the Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 Explorer series maps, with the route marked on, along with any shortcuts and extensions. These maps have a scale of 4cm to 1km (2½ inches to 1 mile) and offer a high level of detail, such as the location of a path in relation to a forest ride or boundary, making route finding much easier. All of the walks can be found on the Ordnance Survey Explorer Map OL22 – New Forest, except for Walk 1 which also requires Map 131 – Romsey, Andover & Test Valley.
The grid references given in the guide are generated from the National Grid, and each map is divided by a series of vertical and horizontal lines to create a grid with a spacing of 1km. You can locate a point on a map, accurate to within 100m, using a grid reference made up of two letters and six numbers. The two letters correspond to the 100,000m square in which the grid reference lies. The first two digits of the six-figure number correspond to the vertical line (‘easting’) to the left of the point of interest, using the horizontal numbers along the bottom and top of the map; the third digit is the tenths of the square (equivalent to 100m). Next take the fourth and fifth digits, and move up the map to locate the horizontal line (‘northing’) below the point of interest; the last digit is again the number of tenths moving up through the square. Always remember: the horizontal numbers come before the vertical ones.
