One of Ringwood’s major advantages is its location on the edge of the New Forest National Park, which received National Park status in 2005 and provides a genuine walker’s and cyclists’ paradise. The forest landscape with its wildlife and geology, also boasts wild New Forest ponies and herds of deer, making it an ideal place to enjoy at weekends.
When you tire of the forest, you will find that Ringwood also benefits from being close to some of the UK’s finest beaches in Hampshire and Dorset, forming part of the Jurassic Coast (a World Heritage Site), with its crystal clear waters and golden sandy beaches.
The town is surrounded by a number of lakes at Hightown and Poulner whilst Blashford Lake offers a number of sailing activities.

The town has a number of good schools including Poulner Junior and Ringwood School, along with the nearby The Grange and Ferndown Upper.
Although Ringwood does not have its own train station, commuters have the choice of travelling from Bournemouth, Southampton or Christchurch stations, which run direct services to London or to more local destinations in Dorset and Hampshire.
