The local area guide to living in Lyndhurst

For those who have ever travelled to a particularly beautiful park and wished they could stay permanently, Lyndhurst will be a dream come true. The village of Lyndhurst is situated in the centre of the New Forest National Park in Hampshire, and whilst not quite a rural retreat owing to the popularity with tourists all year round, it certainly provides a charming feel with its enchanting buildings and captivating surroundings.

Known as the 'capital' of the New Forest, it comes complete with huge historical significance, and was also home to Alice Liddell: the inspiration behind Lewis Carroll's famous tale of "Alice in Wonderland."

Information about the local residents

The civil parish is home to just over 3,000 residents; a small yet lively village, it is popular among older generations. As a result, the average age is higher than the UK average, at 47 years of age. The largest employment sector is in management, though administrative and secretarial work were close followers in the most recent census report results.

66% of the population identified as being Christian, with just over 10% identifying as Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish or 'Other'. 22% of those surveyed claimed not to be religious.

Nearby schools

There are two main schools in Lyndhurst. These are the Saint Michael and All Angels Infant School and the New Forest Small School.

Saint Michael's school is an aided Church of England school, with a 'Good' Ofsted report rating. The school takes on just 30 new pupils each year, meaning places are in high demand.

The New Forest Small School is classed as a 'unique', small-scale school, offering education to boys and girls aged between 3-16. The school's educational system is certainly more personal than many other schools nowadays, in that no class exceeds 12 children. The total number of students totals to approximately 70.

Getting around

The village is served by a regular local bus service, with 13 lines travelling to nearby towns such as Lymington, all the way down to Southampton. Two express coach services are also offered, for links to Bournemouth and London.

Lyndhurst itself does not have a train station. The nearest station is Ashurst, which is served by the South Western Main Line from London Waterloo to Weymouth.

For those with a car, the village is situated on the A35 which leads straight to seaside towns of Southampton and Bournemouth. The A337 is also nearby which provides a link to Lymington - a ferry port from which one could easily catch a ferry to the Isle of Wight if they had a spare day or two. It should be noted that Lyndhurst is notorious for traffic owing to the one-way system in place, and most locals claim to prefer use of public transport.

Local Shops

There are hundreds of things to do, see and enjoy in and around Lyndhurst. For starters, its convenient placement right in the middle of the beautiful New Forest is a major appeal to many who view the area. The village holds historical and cultural significance and is renowned in folklore, being the place in which the Bisterne Dragon was slain.

Anyone in Lyndhurst simply must visit the notable 'Queen's House' (or the King's house depending on the ruling monarch); the main building in the New Forest owned by the crown. Refurbished in the 17th Century in the reign of Henry VIII, it has been perfectly preserved since.

There are many shops and cafes situated in the centre of Lyndhurst. Many of these are trinket shops and boutiques aimed at tourists visiting the New Forest, however several independent shops can be found scattered around for everything you could possibly need.
