Hampshire isn’t short of influential figures living in Hampshire but one that you should pay close attention to is Jane Austen’s House in Alton, Hampshire. Author of Pride and Prejudice, Emma and other novels, Jane Austen’s house has been turned into a museum. The 17th-century house is where she spent the last eight years of her life and visitors can take a step back in time to where Austen wrote her novels.
The South Downs is regarded as the “gateway to England” because of its gently sloping green hills, globally significant chalk grassland, ancient woods, starry night sky, wildlife-rich heathland, and windswept cliffs. Visitors can go on endless new walks with over 3,300km of footpaths, bridleways and byways – more than any other National Park.
For TV and film fans, the Highclere Castle is worth visiting as the 5,000-acre estate has been used as a filming location for many films and TV series – the most popular of them all is the historical drama, Downton Abbey. The castle also has an Egyptian Exhibition which celebrates the 5th Earl of Carnarvon’s discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb.
Listed as Grade ll on the National Register of Historic Parks and Gardens, Exbury Gardens is a 200-acre woodland garden with a spectacular collection of plants, trees and beautiful landscapes. The steam train is also highly recommended to visit the rest of the gardens such as the Summer Lane Garden which is only accessible by train.
