Brownsea Island is located at the centre of Poole Harbour offering spectacular views across to Studland and the Purbeck Hills. Habitats include pinewoods. The island, which is traffic free, provides a safe and relaxing place for walks and picnics, ideal for families to explore.

The only way to reveal The New Forest's hidden gems and truly appreciate the sights, sounds and smells of the forest is to get out there and explore. Try to escape from the confines of the car and head out on foot, bicycle or on horseback to get a more intimate feel of the forest, its coast and villages.

Bournemouth and Dorset cruises are a firm favourite with lots to do and activities galore and if all else fails there is always the long sandy beach.
