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