3. The New Forest
The rolling plains of the New Forest make this national park the perfect home for wild horses and donkeys—the wildlife selection is amazing. This forest is famous for wide-open views and breathtaking tranquility. This forest became a national landmark when William the Conqueror claimed it as his royal hunting forest in the 11th century. He kicked the peasants off the land and walled it in. This land is now a national park that extends to the coast. There are many historical features to add interest to the skyline. Thousands of deer and cattle roam free, and you can get any supplies or a bite to eat at the shops. There are a couple of kinds of trails including some fast and fun mountain bike trials. This forest was beautiful enough to be claimed by a king. The views are amazing and the wildlife is abundant.
