The town was founded in 1376 by the English king and has always been viewed as one of the golden spots for people to visit when going to the south coast of England. The New Forest National Park is one of the top tourist attractions, which has The New Forrest Inn hotel located next to it. Before it was the site of legendary The Forest Inn hotel, which has now been replaced with the new and modern version. You could also find a popular nightlife including bars, clubs and casinos back in the early 1980s but ever since the city seems to have quiet down a bit and today the closest casino is based in Bournemouth, a few miles away. Most of the bars are still open and some clubs are still open in the summer and during bigger holidays, but the nightlife in Emery Down is not as busy as it used to be a couple of decades ago.
