Hythe is on coast of The Solent. Great place to view the busy waterway. Popular sailing place too. Close to The New Forest. Bit expensive to live there perhaps!

Winchester is smiling during this delightful event!! As they say "the Art of the Unexpected!" Great fun. An ancient city in playful mode!

Hedge End is a small town a bit to the east of Southampton. It has developed over hundreds of years. Nowadays close to the M27 motorway it is a thriving community.

Alton Famous for its delicious watercress and the Watercress Train Line! Jane Austen lived at Chawton which is not far away. Popular town with residents and tourists!

Queen Elizabeth Country Park  is a really beautiful big park that includes Butser Hill. Venue for many events and a lovely place to visit anyway. It is close to Petersfield and the A3.

Farnborough home of the famous Air Show of course and also of the Air Investigations Branch. The Abbey is the burial place of Napoleon III. The local authority are modernising the town over a period of years.

Hillier Gardens is on the edge of attractive Romsey in the Test Valley. It has a popular garden centre so if you are interested in plants a visit there would be interesting.

Curdridge  is south of Winchester and only a few miles from Southampton. This close to The Solent accommodation could be found in the locality for touring the area.

Fordingbridge  is on the River Avon and close to the county boundary in the New Forest. With its name it is obvious that this was an ancient crossing place for the river. The first bridge is recorded in c1252. As The Avon Path passes through the town it is well known to hikers.

Waterlooville is a fast developing town not far from Portsmouth. It is one of several small places close to that city.

Brockenhurst This is a lovely area in The New Forest. Think about it, trees, streams, ponies and deer all close to this large village. No wonder everybody everywhere makes for the Showgrounds in July!

Please note that National Express coach services have been suspended due to the current pandemic.

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!!!!
