Events in Hampshire in August conjure up summer fun and holidays. Whatever part of Hampshire one visits, there is sure to be somewhere of interest. It might be the Petersfield area - a lovely town in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It might be the New Forest, Winchester, Southampton or Portsmouth. It might be the valleys of the River Test or Itchen perhaps. Or the many small towns and villages that are a delight to discover.

What a feast Hampshire is!!!

Portsmouth is the ancient Royal Naval port home of HMS Victory and the Mary Rose. Gun Wharf is an interesting shopping area built on the old Royal Naval dockyard. Southsea is nearby.  The Common is a large open grassy area on the seafront.

Wickham in the Meon Valley and a conservation area. Chesapeake Mill, a no longer used water mill that was made from the timbers of a ship of the same name. Listed as a Grade II building. Wickham was the birthplace of William Long in 1324. He was always known as William of Wykeham and as Bishop of Winchester was the founder of Winchester College and New College, Oxford. William was also partly responsible for Winchester Cathedral as it now looks.

Ringwood probably named as a town ringed with the trees of the New Forest! Most of the Hampshire Treasures list is of special trees! This attractive market town is on the River Avon and so of course part of this ornothigcal interesting area.

Romsey Home of Hillier Gardens which is an attractive garden on the fringes of the town. Romsey is in the most attractive Test Valley, all water meadows and wildlife. The town centre has been renovated.

Petersfield is in the South Downs National Park. If you want to explore the National Park, Petersfield is a great centre. A pleasant market town amidst an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is on both the A3 and the London to Portsmouth railway line, so great access.

Emsworth  is on the shore of Chichester Harbour and very scenic. Mecca for bird watchers, fisherman, artists and sailors. Although a village it is a busy one, particularly in the summer.

Plaitford is about five miles from Romsey on the A36. Its river is a tributary of the River Test. Plaitford Common is an area of Special Scientfic Interest.
