What to do if it rains?

I’m staying near New Milton next Sunday and Monday for my birthday. Unfortunately the weather is not looking good. I was wondering what activities/things adults can do if it rains? We’re both 23 years old. We have restaurant reservations for the jetty and boathouse in the evenings just need things to do in the day?! Help!

Put on a waterproof and go for a walk on the beach, it’s only rain. Visit Beaulieu if you’re interested in cars , you can also visit the house and abbey.

Isn't rain part of normal everyday life? Dress for the conditions, take some exercise by walking around in it - after the heat of the past weeks, the fresh smell and cleanliness will be a revelation to enjoy

What are you planning to do it if doesn't rain? Could you adapt somehow?

And no one trusts weather forecasts on the English South West Coast anyway....

There are National Trust houses to visit. There ate some RSPB bird hides not that far from Corfe Castle. And you can of course go for a meal or visit a pub

You could go to Bournemouth which has a wide range of activities. Personally I'd just take a raincoat and go for some long walks.
