Lyndhurst Park Hotel


The Lyndhurst Park Hotel is also at the east end of the village. Coming up towards the High Street you soon reach a couple of the local pubs.


The Stag and The Mailmans Pubs

The Fox and Hounds Pub in the High Street

Meridian Garage


Lyndhurst also boasts a Ferrari and Maserati garage, not that many of the locals can afford one!!


Looking down the High Street, one can see the recent improvements and road narrowing, at a cost of around a million pounds. Unfortunately, this does cause traffic queues on all roads leading to the village during the busy Summer months.

Alice Hargreaves grave

In Lyndhurst churchyard is the grave of Alice Hargreaves, the "Alice in Wonderland" girl, for whom Lewis Carroll created the story.

The church itself is worth a visit, and its distinctive steeple can be seen from most parts of the village and beyond. The steeple really is straight - it's just converging verticles in the photos!!!!!
