The Central Southern England region
The Central Southern England / Hampshire region
Hampshire is a popular holiday area due to its mild climate. It has plenty of tourist attractions including its many seaside resorts, the maritime area in Portsmouth, the motor museum and Bucklers Hard at Beaulieu, Marwell Zoo and Arundel Castle is reasonably close by. The South Coast is a fabulous place to visit - its full of history, culture and entertainment .
The New Forest National Park lies within the borders, as does a large area of the South Downs which has now become a National Park. Hampshire has a long maritime history and two of England's largest ports lie on its coast. The county is famed as home of the writers Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Conan Doyle and Rudyard Kipling.
You can visit The Isle of Wight easily on a short ferry or hovercraft ride.
The Portsmouth / Southsea area
Portsmouth is a unique island city, surrounded by the Solent and little more than 2 miles across, its waterfront life, whether historical or modern is never far away. Seafaring has shaped our local history and the sea still adds to the life of the city today; sailing, yacht racing - Fastnet and Cowes - diving and water sports attract many visitors every year.
Visit the Spinnaker with its stunning panoramic views, the Historic Dockyard steeped in maritime tradition or treat yourself to a shopping spree at Gun Wharf Quays Shopping Village with over 85 designer outlets. Dine al fresco and watch the comings and goings of the busy harbour or just enjoy a leisurely walk along the Esplanade.
Portsea Island is flat so is a cyclists dream and the cycle paths and lanes, while not perfect, do extend the full length of the Seafront and throughout the city. The local cycle hire shop is 10 minutes walk away and a lot quicker on the ride back.
Portsmouth makes an ideal place for a summer holiday whether you are a retired couple or a family with young children. Southsea seafront - don't miss Southsea Castle , Blue Reef Aquarium, Pitch and Putt, Canoe lake with
swan boats and Tenth hole cafe.
During the summer on Sunday afternoons there is free live music at the bandstand behind the D Day museum.
On day 58 as part of a 70 day nationwide journey around the UK, Portsmouth will be the host community for the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay as we welcome the Olympic Flame to the city on Sunday 15 July
