Look out for local shows. To the North of Brockenhurst is New Park, which is the annual home of the New Forest Show, held in late July

Visit the gardens at Exbury or Furzey  

Take a ferry from Lymington to the Isle of Wight

Visit Rhinefield and Bolderwood Ornamental Drives . These are beautiful all year round, but perhaps at their best in early November, with ancient beech trees displaying spectacular autumn colours
