Festival welcome

New Forest Walking Festival Lyndhurst for web


Welcome to this year’s New Forest Walking Festival.

The autumn is a splendid time of year for a walk around the National Park, with fiery foliage providing the perfect backdrop for exploring the gentle, flat landscape of the New Forest.

Led by the New Forest National Park Authority and partner organisations, the Walking Festival includes many of the area’s best walks. It’s the perfect opportunity to discover more about the National Park, with guidance from friendly and knowledgeable walk leaders to help walkers of all ages unlock the secrets of the Forest.

Most of the guided walks are accessible by public transport, and many walks are free or discounted if you arrive by bus, train, bike or on foot. 

We hope that the expanded range of walks in this year’s festival show that you don’t need a car to go for a tranquil walk in the New Forest.

Oliver Crosthwaite-Eyre

Chairman of the New Forest National Park Authority
