 Fordingbridge is on the western edge of the New Forest surrounded by rolling countryside and places of interest yet being within 60 minutes of Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral, Winchester Cathedral, the South coast and the Isle of Wight.

Add to this a town full of Independent Retailers with personal, knowledgeable service and you will realise that Fordingbridge offers a very special experience.

This intention of this website is to be useful to both locals and visitors as it gives information on businesses and activities in Fordingbridge and Surrounding Villages. The website is run by volunteers to promote the local area to all. 

Fordingbridge is fortunate enough to have a Visitor Information Centre (VIC) in Kings Yard on Salisbury Street, Fordingbridge. The VIC is open from Monday to Saturday 10am to 3pm, from Easter until October.  Please give information of events that you are holding locally to the VIC so that they can make visitors aware of these attractions.
