you like aircraft, ships, outer space, local history, literature, castles, Roman

villas or Iron Age forts it's all here in Hampshire.


Travel back in time at Milestones, Hampshire's Living History Museum in Basingstoke where you can see costumed actors help bring the streets of old to life and you can peruse the shops of yesteryear.


In the stunning Peninsula Barracks in Winchester you can see Winchester's Military Museums. This is an outstanding collection of five of the British Army's finest regiments including the Gurkha Museum and Horse Power - the Museum of the King's Royal Hussars.


Visit Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and see Henry VIII's flagship the Mary Rose, Nelson's battleship the HMS Victory and Queen Victoria's HMS Warrior 1860.


If you love cars old and new, you will be a home at the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu where you can find out about the history of motoring, from modern rally cars and F1 Grand Prix to Top Gear, James Bond and Del Boy's Reliant Regal.

The family will also enjoy Palace House, the home of the Montagu family, historic Beaulieu Abbey and numerous other attractions such as a monorail ride and mini driving circuit for children.


Once more on the literary trail, you can visit Selborne to see the historic house and garden which was home to naturalist and writer Gilbert White. Here you'll also find an exhibition devoted to explorer Frank Oates, otherwise known as Capt Lawrence Oates of Antarctic fame.
