A large village in the new forest, heavily aimed at tourists and offering various crafts, knick-knacks and speciality foods and drinks. Cafes and cosy pubs are easy to find and numerous stores for unique (for a certain value of unique) gifts can be found.
Hurst Castle, Milford-on-Sea
A large castle, heavily used as a part of the United Kingdom's sea defences in World War I, the originally Tudor castle of Hurst sits on a split of land in Lymington. Reached either by a regular ferry or by a reasonably long walk along the single strand connecting it to the mainland it is a fascinating place for an afternoon.
Hinton Ampner House
A manor house, built in the 18th Century (though significantly remodelled in the 19th) and set in sprawling, well maintained grounds, Hinton Ampner House is a Grade II listed building, maintained by the National Trust.
UNITED KINGDOM | Chicken Tikka Masala
The United Kingdom has a few national dishes, Fish and Chips, a Sunday Roast, a Full English Breakfast, but perhaps the most interesting is Chicken Tikka Masala, an Indian inspired meal that is uniquely and quintessentially British.
