Brockenhurst Things to Do

  • Go For A Beer - #2 The Snakecatcher

    This is what I describe as a "Pub for people who don't like pubs". Maybe a dank, mid-week December evening wasn't the best time to catch it with its pale and shiny, barn-like, interior almost deserted. I should imagine during the summer it is busy and maybe atmospheric but, as with everywhere else here in the village, I didn't even get a...

  • Go For A Beer - #1 Foresters Arms

    On the two occasions I dropped in for a beer here the pub was busy and buzzy but on neither visit did I really connect with it as a pub - which is not like me at all. It had all the makings of a cracking pub - local beer, bar stools, an attractive barmaid, a mixed bunch of regulars, a smoking patio...However I found the service very off-hand, the...

Brockenhurst Transportation

  • Cycling In The New Forest

    With over 100 miles of off- and on-road cycle routes and relatively level terrain the New Forest is great for cycling and Brockenhurst, with its relatively central position, makes for an ideal base.If bringing your own South West trains are particularly bike-friendly with several carriages having cycle racks. Once here the two cycle hire places...

  • The Lymington Branch Line

    For an interesting day out the town of Lymington, on the coast, is well worth a visit. This is also where the ferries to the Isle of Wight sail to and from. To get there trains run half-hourly from Brockenhurst Station and stop at both Lymington Town and Pier. The journey only takes 10 minutes and a day return ticket costs (Oct 2012) £3.50.

From London the journey time is about 90 minutes.This is also the inland terminus of branch line...

Brockenhurst Favorites

  • Ponies Around The Village

    The ponies that roam free in the New Forest are a native species, indigenous to the area and with a history going back thousands of years. All the ponies are owned by the "Commoners" who register them for grazing annually with the "Agisters". The registration requires a fee, payment of which is marked by cutting the pony's tail. Each "Agister" has...
