New Forest National Park
There are exciting events, activities and things to do for all the family taking place in The Showground every week that help you learn more about this special area. Check out our events calendar for inspiration for your next day out in the Forest or submit your own event for others to find. Since its creation by William the Conqueror around 1079 for the pursuit of the ‘beasts of the chase’ – red, roe and fallow deer and wild pig – many historical events and influences have shaped the landscape and cultural heritage of the New Forest. This section chronicles this varied past, tells the story of some of the Forest’s most famous people and places and shines a light on its characterful buildings. The New Forest is rich in wildlife thanks to the wonderful mosaic of wet and dry heaths, mires and bogs, ancient pasture woodland, coniferous plantations, acid grasslands, mixed farmland and coastline. This combination of natural environments is hard to find anywhere else in western Europe. These pages help you discover some of the area’s most unusual, interesting or easy-to-spot wildlife.
