If you are visiting the south of England, Hampshire is a great place to visit with its coastline, local breweries and country pubs offering great food.
Here are 3 of our favourite places to consider stay in Hampshire:
Hayling Island is situated to the east of Portsmouth and even though the bridge from the mainland is a 5-minute walk it can feel like you are somewhere else. This small island has ‘Hayling Island’ beach which has amusement rides, eateries and even a steam train you can take along the beach.
The New Forest has a wealth of restaurants, wildlife and places to stay. It perfectly blends the forestry countryside and wildlife with the coastline to make walks and cycling a real pleasure. It’s also hard to believe this relatively small area boasts its very own New Forest ice cream as well as local beers (amongst other things).
Isle Of Wight
Technically it’s ‘Hampshire and the Isle of Wight’ as this fantastic island sees itself as being separate to Hampshire and it’s a great place to visit. A boat crossing is the only way to get there but once you arrive there’s plenty to do including theme parks, museums, piers, coastline to view and much more.
You can also stay on a working farm on the Isle of Wight.
