Hampshire's landscape is a rich fabric of contrasts and the beauty of some of England's most inspiring countryside and coastline can easily be experienced on foot.

Open down lands, tranquil valleys, charming villages, lowland heaths, ancient woodlands and an attractive coastline can all be explored through walks in Hampshire on 3,000 miles of footpaths, bridleways and byways.
