National Parks & AONB's
Butser Hill, Queen Elizabeth Country Park
Hampshire is home to two national parks: the South Downs National Park and the New Forest National Park. The North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding National Beauty joins them to represent some of the most amazing natural countryside in the UK
Confirmed as a National Park in 2009, the stunning landscape of the South Downs charms and enriches from Winchester in Hampshire to Eastbourne in East Sussex.
Created in 1079 as a hunting area for William the Conqueror, the New Forest is now a national park, home to around 4,000 ponies, cattle and deer who roam freely amongst the ancient woodland.
Located in the counties of Berkshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire, the highly attractive unspoilt villages, sense of isolation and breath-taking scenery are the primary attractions of the area.
