Lyndhurst has been known as the capital of The New Forest since William the Conqueror established it as a royal hunting ground in 1079, with Kings and Queens staying at the Royal Manor throughout the centuries. Lyndhurst is also home to the Forestry Commission and the Verderers’ Court (Verderers are the guardians of the forest’s rights and therefore protectors of the forest landscape).
The delightful High Street offers an eclectic mix of boutique shops and everyday stores including an old-fashioned sweet shop and award-winning butchers, as well as an art gallery, a vintage interiors shop and a Ferrari and Maserati showroom. There are numerous places to eat out, ranging from popular country inns, such as The Royal Oak at Bank (a hamlet within the parish boundary) to Lime Wood, a country house hotel with a highly regarded restaurant and luxurious spa.
