Wherever you are in Hampshire, you'll never need to venture far to find
<br />something fun to fill your day.
<br />If exploring the great outdoors is your thing, then Hampshire delivers in spades.
<br />Whether it's walking in the rolling South Downs in the east, or tracing William
<br />the Conqueror's footsteps through the New Forest in the west; exploring ancient
<br />Beacon Hill in the north, or relaxing on the blue flag beaches of the Solent in the
<br />south – Hampshire is a huge natural adventure playground that's packed full of
<br />things to do for all the family.
<br />If it's a rainy day, or the equally great indoors is more your thing, you can
<br />discover how the other half lived at Highclere House, where the hit television
<br />series Downton Abbey is filmed; marvel at the amazing machines on show at
<br />Beaulieu, home of the National Motor Museum; or try an experiment at Intech,
<br />Winchester's hands-on interactive science and technology centre.
<br />Or if you're in the mood for a fun family day out with a few thrills and spills
<br />attached, you could get up close to the wonders of the natural world at Marwell
<br />Wildlife; or pop along to Paulton's Park, which has 60 rides and attractions for
<br />thrill-seekers and is also home of Peppa Pig World – a guaranteed hit with the
<br />under fives, and quite a few of the older kids as well!
