There's plenty to explore in the New Forest, with lots of scenic walks and a number of tea shops and pubs to stop at along the way

Southampton is such a great city to be a student in, there is always something on in town, especially with the new West Quay area. It is also well connected so you can pop to Bournemouth, Portsmouth or even London. The nightlife and music scene is fantastic.
