Why not make it a day out? You will see the New Forest ponies and their foals as you travel through the Forest. There are lots of cafés and pubs in the town where you can have lunch or pleasant picnic spots down on the Quay or in Grove Gardens park near the High Street. Entry to the gardens will be by programme (£6) on sale in advance at St Barbe Museum in New Street and at Moore Blatch, 48 High Street, on the day as well as at all other gardens. Many of the gardens are within walking distance of each other - or if you want to see them all a short bicycle ride.
