Hampshire dates back over 1,000 years to Anglo-Saxon times - a traditional county bordered to the west by Dorset and Wiltshire; to the north by Berkshire and to the east by Surrey and West Sussex.
Adored for its fresh coastal towns and rich quality of life, Hampshire is a great place for enjoying both the old and the new; the quiet country and the busy city.
Much of Hampshire's southern coastline is on the Solent, the strait separating mainland Britain from the Isle of Wight. But amongst all the green space and sea air, comes cutting-edge universities, a range of rich culture and heritage, and the energetic cities of Portsmouth, Southampton and Winchester.
Its residents can expect great transport links too, including access to the M3 and regular trains into London Waterloo. Southampton airport flies direct to many European destinations, while Hampshire ferry ports service the Isle of Wight, The Channel Islands and continental Europe.
