Drives near me: The five best drives near Southampton – from the city to the New Forest


    1. Southampton to Christchurch

    Christchurch is a town in Dorset on the south coast close to Bournemouth in the west and the New Forest in the east.

    The town is home to some wonderful views, restaurants and cafes, and is the perfect spot for a day trip.

    But the journey there from Southampton is probably just as good as the destination.

    It will take you roughly 40 minutes and 24 miles to drive to Christchurch but the route takes you through the incredible New Forest.

    The New Forest has a national park that is full of heathland, forest trails and native horses.

    Along your way, you are likely to encounter all manner of animals grazing by the side of the road and even on the road.
