    Hi
    We are driving down tonight to Stonehenge and then spending the next 4 days in the Southampton area.
    We will have our 11 year old son with us and once we have visited Stonehenge tomorrow we are looking for places to visit. We plan to go into Southampton and go to the Maritime museum and would like a day in the New forest.
    Thankyou
    Peter and liz

    Go in to the Cathedral Close and see the 'soldier in the wardrobe museum' and Edwards Heaths house.

    He would probably enjoy Beaulieu

    Not sure what a family ticket, but it's interesting. If he is into wildlife there is a reptiliary in the forest and you can watch deer at Bolderwood.

    Thankyou for all your reply's.
    We visited Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathederal and old Castle ruins.
    Beaulieu Motor museum and a Castle/fort near Southampton.
    We stayed on the "Sandy Balls" site which was great in the New forest.
    We are planning our trip next week to the Lake district.
    thankyou
