My first visit of the New Year was to a National Park in the UK called the New Forest. Today's forest was established by William the Conqueror in 1066 and called Nova Foresta. It was his own personal hunting ground for deer, wild boar and other game animals. In the forest, you can see ponies roaming free from their enclosures. I visited a small village called Beaulieu which has a large motorcar museum, an abbey and a palace. I also walked to an old shipbuilding village called Buckler's Hard. There is a maritime museum which you can visit. Two other places in the New Forest which I saw, were towns called Lymington and Lyndhurst. Lymington is on the coast by the Solent and is a quaint place with nice shops and restaurants. Lyndhurst is in the centre of the National Park and is regarded as the capital of the New Forest. It also has nice shops and restaurants and a beautiful old church called St Michael's and All Angel's Church. If you get a chance to visit this place while you are in the UK, I strongly recommend you do so!
