The county’s name derives from Southampton. Originally called ‘Hamtun’, which roughly translates as ‘village-town’, the scīr was added to denote the name of the county. Famed for its naval roots, the county is still the home of the Royal Navy and saw the famous voyages of both the Titanic and the Mayflower.
Other famous historic links include the capital city of Alfred the Great, the king who created the vision of a single kingdom of England, uniting the separate factions of Mercia, Wessex, Northumbria, Cent, Anglia and the Danelaw areas controlled by the invading Vikings who put down roots and set up communities. It was the birthplace of the Spitfire, the plane attributed with winning the Battle of Britain and also the main launching point for the D-Day landings.
Today the fighting is long gone, instead the county of rolling hills and glorious countryside including two national parks produces award-winning wines and has some major attractions making it hugely popular with tourists and day trippers. New Forest ponies, muntjac deer, wild boar, mink and otters can all be found in the county which has a number of protected conservation areas. The warmer than average climate also makes it a hub for agriculture, both traditional and experimental and it’s an important area for UK food production. It’s also one of England’s most affluent counties with above average house prices, employment levels and earnings.
Nature lovers will find so much to enjoy, there are two national parks (South Downs and New Forest), several conservation areas and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty offering mile after mile of stunning scenery to explore. Marwell Zoo is one of the county’s top attractions while the Hawk Conservancy Trust and Birdworld also offer great days out.
Thrill-seekers should head to Paulton Park, home to fast rides and Peppa Pig World, with attractions for all ages. You’ll also find trampoline parks, softplay centres, go kart tracks and other energetic attractions.
Golfers can enjoy more genteel play at some top courses, while there are notable sports teams including Southampton and Portsmouth football clubs. The Ageas Bowl is home to Hampshire Cricket Club.
History buffs will find plenty on offer, Hampshire Maritime Museum, the historic docks, Mary Rose Centre, the D-Day Story, plus Beaulieu Motor Museum and historic house. Along with the many listed buildings and National Trust properties, Highclere Castle stands tall thanks to its recent appearances in Downton Abbey. Winchester Cathedral and the many historic sites in the town are also well worth a visit.
Southampton is home to 3 cruise terminals and is the UK’s premier port for cruise ships handling 500 ships and over 2,000,000 passengers. The city’s airport, Southampton International, is also a major gateway with services across Europe and beyond. It was the site of the first flight of the iconic Spitfire. The major motorways are the M3 which runs up through Surrey where it meets with the M25, while the M27 connects Southampton and Portsmouth, leading on to Chichester and Brighton (as the A27). A large number of towns and cities offer services into London with average commutes from the county taking under an hour.
