About YHA New Forest

If Hampshire and its glorious surroundings appeal to your class's sense of discovery and adventure, look no further than YHA New Forest. Based in a quiet, relaxed area, the Youth Hostel is perfect for school trips due to the large number of activities that take place around it - and it also provides groups with tasty home-cooked meals!
The nearby Avon Tyrell Outdoor Activity Centre in the New Forest provides plenty of activities if you're planning an action-packed residential escape for your school group - walking, horse riding and pony trekking are available, as well as a large number of routes for cycling. For those not afraid to get a little wet, watersports are a local favourite; you'll be able to take canoes out on the Beaulieu River.
Local attractions are not few and far between - the area is surprisingly packed full of educational activities considering its rural setting. Around 45 minutes away is Marwell Zoological Park, a beautiful reserve set in 100 acres of parkland, with over 200 species of animals on its books - and some of these are rare and endangered. Liberty's Owl, Raptor and Reptile Centre - just six miles away - is home to a large collection of birds of prey, while the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu provides a full history lesson in motorised transport.
