Things to see and do in Hampshire
A county packed with history and culture, Hampshire’s strong literary heritage means there are attractions dedicated to iconic writers Charles Dickens and Jane Austen. If you have kids who are too young to appreciate those two authors quite yet, then a trip to Paultons Park – home of Peppa Pig World – could be on the cards.
With stunning natural scenery available along the coast and at the New Forest, South Downs National Park and North Wessex Downs, you can also spend time visiting historic castles and cathedrals, exploring museums and country parks.
Whether you have school-age kids already or you’re thinking about the future, you’ll be happy to know there are plenty of schools rated as outstanding by Ofsted in Hampshire. They include St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Aldershot, Farnborough's Tower Hill Primary School and St Faith’s CofE in Winchester.
Children in Winchester can continue on to the top performing Westgate School once they reach secondary age, while Eastleigh’s Thornden School is an outstanding choice based on Ofsted’s inspections. If you’re based in Southampton, the education authorities also rate Hounsdown School in the Totton catchment area just as highly.
