Does there anybody here live in Alton, Hampshire, or is there anybody here is a walk-enthusiast, who had done some walks in Hampshire : Alton - Chawton - Farringdon (Upper) - Selborne; walk the South Down National Park and / or benefiting the South Down's rambler services (Refer to : Visit-Winchester or Visit-Hampshire) ?
I am interested in those activities, yet haven't "seen" the latest reviews on them.
Thanks anyone for sharing and posting reviews.
Hi! I'm preparing a 4 days break to Peppa Pig World with my children (next may). I would like to know if there is any advantage buying tickets in advance via web. Also If tickets allow the entrance to Paulton's Park and if is it good for 3 years old children, and any other advice you can give me. We'll be using a rental car. Is there any other good attraction near there?
Thanks a lot.

Hi - I am moving to Eastleigh and just wanted some recommendations of things to do in and around Eastleigh...eg. bars, restaurants, walks, etc.
I was just wondering what it is like living in hampshire?? I currently live in the North East of England, but I am wanting to move somewhere in Hampshire??
Where are the nice places?? What has the best clubs/pubs and so on??
I'll be accompanying my husband on business to Southampton. We will most probably not have a car.
What will be my options for getting to tourist sites in Hampshire?
Hello again! Having been denied river access to Salisbury / Stonehenge / Avebury ;) we enjoyed all those places by car equipped with GPS directions. Since the GPS system took precedence over my carefully researched route, I have now lost track of our return route from Avebury, and am hoping that someone can help me identify it.
Starting from Chichester we had driven to Stonehenge via Portsmouth and up through part of the New Forest into Salisbury, then onto the motorway briefly to reach Stonehenge. We then reached Avebury via Devizes. On the return, we came through Marlborough and then headed south. The gasoline strikes (threats) were on and we filled up wherever we could - our last known stop (and petrol receipt) being Collingbourne Ducis north-west of Andover. At this point I have no idea which route we drove south to reach Portsmouth - but we passed through no more large cities. I believe we cut straight south in the area between Winchester and Salisbury. The road eventually climbed a steepish ridge - it was a very pretty drive along a ridge with the trees forming a canopy over the road - so much so that we filmed that part of the drive. Our host said something about this road being formerly unpassable due to a state of disrepair. It is also possible that the army has a range near this area and/or that it is a natural preserve. We joined the motorway well west of Portsmouth and then headed back to Chichester.
Has anyone an idea of the pretty-drive route we may have taken? The pavement was very well-maintained. Our host has not been forthcoming with the GPS record - maybe because he knows how miffed I was at having technology supercede my off-the-beaten-path route? ;) However I must admit that the GPS found us a lovely drive this time.
Thanks again - this will help me write my travelogue!
we are coming back to the UK from Saudi for one month end of April maybe a bit longer. I dont want to squeeze into my parents house as it is way to small, I have been thinking of getting a tent and camping in their garden but really dont want to spend that long in a tent in parents garden with teenagers !! I have been looking at self catering holiday lets but they are all so expensive ! Around £2000 for the time we need it ! Framing in Saudi is not big money and UK is so expensive ! Anyone got any ideas of somewhere to rent in Hampshire that wont kill the bank !!!????
I will be staying near Portsmouth in September. My friend has a powerboat and I have a silly idea to cruise up the river to Salisbury. However, though I can't imagine why, access is restricted to anglers who pay fees to fish the tidal parts of the water, as well as by landowners and various municipal authorities. Is this true? I've discovered this through a kayaker's guide: I don't think I know of any river here in Canada that is off-limits...
Thanks.. I guess we'll just have to drive...
Oh...also... Stonehenge (wiltshire) is no longer directly accessible to the public right? Thought I saw something on TV about that...my husband says this is not so, and one can walk among the stones.
how far away is London from portsmouth?
I read in a magazine about South Downs and how you can horseback ride, walk, or bike down the 100-mile stretch from Beachy Head to Hampshire. I'll be in England in a couple weeks and my friend and I would love to horseback ride through part of the stretch, but I've been having trouble finding info about how and where to do this.
We will have a BritRail pass but no access to a car, so hopefully there is somewhere along the stretch that we can take the train to and rent horses for a few hours.
Does anyone have any suggestions or know the best place to do this?
Does anyone know what´s this place like? Anythink would help, is it social, good transport (also to London), nighlife, etc. Hope you can help!
