Alongside the winning spot in Europe it was also given 10th best national park in the world.
It came above iconic locations such as Kilimanjaro and Yellowstone National Park.
The National Trust and other organisations are constantly trying to keep its natural beauty in tact by restoring and repairing when necessary.CEO of Go New Forest Anthony Climpson has said the news was “absolutely wonderful.”
He added “It’s really great news and brilliant for our businesses that have suffered an awful lot over the last couple of years”.
The new title of best national park hopes to bring a boom of tourism to the area.
