New Forest Tour Bus

The New Forest Tour bus has now started for the summer and you can catch them from outside or near the Cottage Lodge Hotel.

The New Forest Tour

Take an open top safari on the New Forest Tour – enjoy grandstand views of the New Forest National Park, wandering ponies, pretty villages and magical landscapes. Hop on and hop off wherever you like and catch the next Tour or switch between routes – all on the same ticket. Hear the stories of the people, places and animals of the New Forest from the on-board commentary – with characters, sounds and music that bring the forest to life.

The New Forest is served by a public bus network, which provides the opportunity to travel around the area by bus.
