Hampshire is the largest county in South East England and is the most populous ceremonial county in the United Kingdom outside the metropolitan counties such as the West Midlands. Hampshire’s tourist attractions include seaside resorts, the Beaulieu Palace House, British National Motor Museum and there are national parks if you feel like a scenic detour for a rejuvenating day out whilst on your caravan holiday. One distinguishing feature about the wildlife in Hampshire is that it is home to a large free roaming herd of Red Deer, which if you’re lucky enough during busy seasons you may catch that perfect photo!
Whether you like exploring ancient forests, camping or glamping, walking along undeveloped landscapes or visiting historic houses, this makes for a fantastic getaway for any keen caravanner. To keep the children entertained there are several fascinating wildlife parks, interactive museums and theme parks such as Paultons Park the home of Peppa Pig World to name a few. Rich in history, Hampshire is home to the Roman Portchester Castle which overlooks Portsmouth Harbour and a series of ports built by Henry VIII in East Fareham which is a great place to wander around and really feel connected with ancient history, and if you feel you have an urge to pick up a pen, that’s probably because it is famed as home of such writers as Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. If you’re looking for a relaxing day out, but you still want an adventure, Hampshire makes for the perfect destination. Once you have exhausted yourself from the many activities Hampshire has to offer, why not relax and take a load off at the various award-winning pubs, restaurants and hotels. Hampshire also caters for those who feel like they still want to be involved in city life by browsing major shopping centres and boutiques, you may be able to find some ancient artefacts yourself! We’re sure you’ll be keen to revisit Hampshire once you’ve fully experienced this clean, friendly and inspirational county from the comforts of your caravan.
