Events in Hampshire
January February March

Links to Events and Places open in a new window

Events in Hampshire in January, February and March can meet with all sorts of weather!! Snow, frost, rain and wind and yet there can be days when the sun shines on the winter landscape and it is so beautiful. There are snowdrops, daffoldils and crocus peeping through the winter soil, hailing spring with their pretty show.

Events during this time are often indoors, but the outdoor variety continues with challenges to surmount which are all part of it!!

Watership Down, made famous by Richard Adams in his book of the same name, actually exists. It is a hill on the North Wessex Downs. Not difficult to recreate in one's mind the scene that inspired the book's author.

Portsmouth is an ancient port for the Royal Navy famous for its dockyard and Navy Days. Home of Nelson's flagship 'Victory'. Gunwharf Quays is now where some of the old dockyard used to be. Now famous for its unique shopping experience. The seaside town of Southsea is close by. Ferries for the Isle of Wight and the Continent leave from Portsmouth.

Romsey is a delightful old market town on the famous trout river The Test. Broadlands was the home of Lord Mountbatten. Romsey Abbey is the largest parish church in Hampshire.

Four Marks is a thriving village on the A31. Traces of habitation go back to the Stone Age!

Winchester is the ancient capital of England and today a busy capital of Hampshire. The High Street is dominated by Westgate at one end and King Alfred at the other. In between can be found a modern shopping street, ideal for shopaholics.

Alresford is a market town home of the Watercress Line well known to lovers of steam.

Fisher's Pond is a little hamlet on the River Itchen near Winchester. It has had a fish farm for 700 years!

Why not travel by Coach

If you do decide the leave the car at home and help the environment too, why not go National Express. They run coaches all over the country. Some pretty good fares too.

Just imagine - sit back and relax, no hassling with the traffic!!!

Do you know that you can book on your mobile phone and they will send the ticket as a text!!!!
