Facts about Hampshire

For many years, Hampshire has had strong connections with the British Army and Royal Marines and many parts were rebuilt after World War II. We have shared below some information we have gathered on our visits to the Hampshire area. Aldershot Home of the British Army, Alton where the expression Sweet Fanny Adams originated following the shocking murder of eight year old Fanny Adams in 1867, the pretty market town of Andover , Basingstoke which has had famous residents including Thomas Burberry and Liz Hurley, the pretty village of Brockenhurst which is home to Beaulieu Motor Museum, enjoy a relaxing river cruise at Bucklers Hard and watch the yachts go by, Chawton , home to novelist Jane Austen in her final years inspiring her in her writing and her home is now open to the public as the Janet Austen House Museum, Eastleigh where Southampton Airport is based, the quaint fishing village of Emsworth , Farnborough which is well known for its international airshow, Gosport which houses the Royal Navy Submarine Museum and The Museum of Naval Firepower, Hayling Island where some of the CassIons for Mulberry Harbour were constructed prior to the D Day Landings and a cracked one which didn't make it to France still remains today at Sinah Sands, Lyndhurst at the heart of the New Forest which has the New Forest tourist information office, Petersfield which holds the Petersfield Music Festival each March, The New Forest which since 2005 has been awarded National Park status and encompasses a large part of Hampshire, Portsmouth visit Historic Dockyard and the newest landmark Spinnaker Tower or Gunwharf Quays Designer Outlet Village with its cosmopolitan bars and restaurants on a scenic waterfront location, Southampton a major port which saw the departure of RMS Titanic in 1912 and cruise ships still use Southampton Docks today.

Southsea home to the Royal Marines Museum, Stockbridge which has inspired poets over the years, Winchester visit the Great Hall, the only remaining part of the 13 th century Winchester Castle which remains above ground and of course the stunning eleventh century Winchester Cathedral.


Why not visit one of the smaller villages in Hampshire, for instance Buckler's Hard.  Lots of TV programes have used this village for various nautical shots....take a look:-

Bucklers Hard



Buckler's Hard is a picturesque 18th century village on the banks of the Beaulieu River in the heart of the New Forest. Historically, it is famed as the place where some of the ships of Nelson's fleet were built, but whether your interest is as a visitor - as an individual, family, group or educational party - or as a sailor wishing to moor in the River, the things to see and enjoy are as varied as the history of the area itself.

There is the Buckler's Hard Story and cottage displays to be seen. Visitors can stay in the village at the Master Builders House Hotel, or you can just enjoy the natural beauty of this historic village and soak up the atmosphere as the local ducks waddle past.

A river cruise or a walk through the woodlands nearby can only add to your pleasure. Check our events page for information about our regular special events.

Buckler's Hard is a little over two miles from its sister attraction of Beaulieu, where visitors can tour the National Motor Museum as well as Palace House and Beaulieu Abbey.


Should you arrive by boat/yacht a real must of a visit is the Bucklers Hard Boat Builders Yard, where they still make yachts today:-


Every yard has its own unique atmosphere, which you can sense almost from the moment of arrival. And at Bucklers Hard, on the banks of the delightful Beaulieu River, you will be immediately aware that - for us - quality comes far before expediency - and meticulous attention-to-detail and loving workmanship before production-line convenience.

To management and workforce at Bucklers Hard Boat Builders, their task is simply expressed: to take the time to find out exactly what each customer requires, and then to deliver this to the very highest standards of quality, timeliness and value.

To those clients who find that their standards match for their own, they extend a most cordial welcome.
