If you're looking for a relaxing holiday with fine food, historic houses and fascinating museums, visit Hampshire for top attractions. For energetic kids and fun loving families there are nature trails, sports activities, wildlife parks, theme parks, interactive museums and much more. If you like walking, cycling, horse riding or water sports there's plenty to keep you amused, while for shopping, food and drink, military heritage and award-winning attractions, Hampshire tops the lot.
The country parks, nature reserves and open spaces of Hampshire's Solent coastline provide a welcome retreat for walkers and nature lovers, but there's also plenty to see and do.
Historic Hurst Castle, behind Keyhaven River, has dramatic views over the Solent and is an ideal place for picnics and walks.
Imposing Fort Nelson, with its massive guns overlooking Portsmouth Harbour, and Portchester Castle, with its well-preserved walls, offer a fascinating insight into the nation's military heritage and can be combined with coastal trips.
Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, has many unspoilt villages, beaches and inlets and is popular with walkers and birdwatchers is right on your doorstep here.
Hayling Island is only a small island, but it has much to offer to resident or visitor alike.
Hayling's combination of rural and marine environments has left us a legacy of unique natural history and a bio-diversity with walking distances of anywhere on the Island.
Hayling Island also has over 3 miles of beaches right on the doorstep of the Solent as well as the Harbours of Langstone and Chichester. With its safe open spaces, fresh air and sheltered waters, Hayling Island has much to offer those that enjoy sports of all kinds, whether on land or at sea.

"Stunning views and good accommodation"
We were very impressed with the view from the upstairs living room and balcony. My three teenage children were particularly taken with the roof facilities and view, which would have been amazing if the weather had been better.
We really enjoyed our time at Whitecaps - the location was good, being only a short walk to the beach, and Hayling Island itself was wonderful to explore. It was also ideally located for visiting Portsmouth and Arundel, both of which had much to offer.
The accommodation itself met all our requirements and the owner was particularly helpful. We would certainly stay again if we were visiting that area in the future!

"Lovely holiday home in a great location"
My partner and I stayed here for an extended stay while we were working in the area and had a wonderful time. We found the house to be very cozy and welcoming, and greatly appreciated a small gift from the owners when we arrived after a very long flight.
The upper floor is the highlight of the house, although had we stayed in the summer, the roof deck would have won out. The views from these two floors are stunning and you feel as though you are completely away from the hustle and bustle of work life. The kitchen is quite well equipped, although needs some updating in terms of the cooking utensils, but we found it more than adequate for our needs.
There are a few shops within close walking distance, and Tesco express/Sainsbury's local are approximately 30 min walk away. The beach is only a short few minutes away as well, with a quick walk down to a few pubs along the seafront.
Overall, a really lovely house and perfect for short or longer breaks.
