Plan Your Visit To Hampshire
Are you looking for somewhere new to take groups? Are you a tour operator seeking 'something different' for your itineraries? Then look no further than a visit to Hampshire.
Hampshire sits tucked away to the very south of England, bordered by Dorset, Wiltshire and Sussex.
The county offers its visitors miles of idyllic countryside, with two national parks – the New Forest and South Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and superb coastline to explore.
It also benefits from excellent transport links including easy access to the motorway and main line train stations.
Hampshire’s group-friendly attractions cater for a range of ages and tastes.
Step back in time at award-winning Beaulieu National Motor Museum, explore the county’s naval heritage at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard or learn about the region’s literary past at Jane Austen’s House Museum.
The author spent much of her life in the county, writing some of her best known novels at her former home, now an intimate museum.
There is no shortage of choice for group-friendly accommodation or group-friendly dining in Hampshire.
Whether your groups would prefer the urban feel of medieval Winchester and the maritime cities of Portsmouth and Southampton, or the quieter rural setting of the New Forest, there are a great selection of hotels located across the county, perfectly suited to a range or tastes and budgets.
