There are not many counties that are as diverse, or as conveniently close to London and the wonderful south west, as Hampshire is.

One of the biggest counties in the south of England, with 1.6 million population and a great place to live and work, Hampshire is a county famous for its countryside,coastline and rich heritage.

Several ways for relaxing during your down time are available from shopping at West Quay to sailing the waters to taking a walk in the New Forest. pop over to Southampton, shop and dine at Gunwharf on the quay at Portsmouth and the town of Basingstoke.

Hampshire is certainly the place for you if you want bright city lights, a village from a picture-book, or a bucket-and-spade seaside resort like Southsea.(Places I would highly recommend are Winchester with it’s stunning catherdral~Winchester with it’s lovely cathedral is a place well worth a visit}. (Fordingbridge is a lovely area and is close to the New Forest~Also Fordingbridge, a superb place, amust for all visitors}.

In Southampton, Gosport and Portsmouth you’ll find a wealth of literary, artistic and historical attractions and along the coastline there are activity centres, nature reserves and county parks.

Catch the ferry to the Isle of Wight, It takes roughtly 30 to 45 minutes across the water depending on which port you travel from. As the ferrys are so often, this makes travelling to the Isle’s of Wight a no brainer.

All in all it’s a superb county well worth a visit, with plenty of market towns and villages to take in.
