About Ringwood

Ringwood, a historic market town nestled on the edge of the New Forest in Hampshire, England, offers a charming blend of history, natural beauty, and vibrant community life. This picturesque town, with its rich heritage dating back to the Anglo-Saxon period, serves as a gateway to some of England's most enchanting landscapes, making it an ideal destination for nature lovers, history enthusiasts, and anyone looking to explore the quintessence of the English countryside.

At the heart of Ringwood's appeal is its deep connection to the New Forest, a vast and ancient woodland that has been a royal forest since the time of William the Conqueror. The forest envelops the town, providing visitors with immediate access to a labyrinth of walking, cycling, and horse riding trails that meander through heathland, dense woods, and past tranquil ponds. The New Forest is renowned for its diverse wildlife, including the famous New Forest ponies, which roam freely, adding to the area's magical ambiance. Exploring the New Forest from Ringwood offers a genuine retreat into nature, where the beauty of the English landscape can be appreciated in its most pristine form.

Ringwood itself boasts a historical charm that is evident in its well-preserved architecture and the weekly market that has been a staple of town life since the Middle Ages. The market, held in the traditional market place, continues to draw locals and visitors alike, offering a variety of goods from fresh local produce to artisan crafts. This bustling market atmosphere, combined with the town's array of independent shops, cafes, and pubs, reflects the vibrant community spirit that defines Ringwood.

The town's heritage is further explored through its landmarks, including the Ringwood Parish Church, a striking example of Gothic architecture with origins dating back to the 13th century. The church, with its serene surroundings, stands as a testament to the town's historical depth and the continuity of community life over the centuries. Another historical highlight is the Ringwood Brewery, where visitors can embark on a tour to discover the art of traditional brewing processes and sample the local ales, a treat for those interested in the craft of beer making.

For those seeking cultural and leisure activities, Ringwood offers a variety of options. The town's arts scene is vibrant, with galleries showcasing the work of local artists and venues hosting music, theatre, and dance performances. The annual Ringwood Carnival is a highlight of the town's events calendar, bringing together the community and visitors in a celebration of local culture, with parades, entertainment, and festivities that light up the town.

The area surrounding Ringwood is dotted with attractions that cater to a wide range of interests. From the tranquil waters of the Blashford Lakes, a haven for birdwatchers and nature enthusiasts, to the adventure parks and gardens that are perfect for family outings, there's no shortage of ways to enjoy the natural and recreational offerings of the region.
