Hampshire is more than just a picturesque destination—it’s a place where intriguing tales come to life. Did you know that Paultons Park, renowned for its family attractions including Peppa Pig World and Lost Kingdom, has a hidden secret? Originally a country park and bird garden, this sprawling 140-acre estate is home to over 100 species of birds and animals, with a fascinating history dating back to its gardens designed by the legendary Capability Brown.

Prepare to be amazed as you delve into Portsmouth’s historic waterfront, where the iconic Mary Rose awaits. Contrary to popular belief, Henry VIII’s mighty ship, the Mary Rose, sailed the seas for an astonishing 34 years before its fateful sinking. Recovered in 1982, this magnificent vessel now resides in an award-winning museum, captivating visitors with its remarkable preservation and tales of maritime adventure.

Hampshire’s literary heritage is equally compelling. Explore the origins of the world’s greatest detective as you wander through Southsea, the birthplace of Sherlock Holmes. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the genius behind Holmes, penned his first gripping adventure, ‘A Study in Scarlet,’ right here. Immerse yourself in the world of literature further by visiting the Jane Austen museum and retracing the footsteps of the beloved author who once called Hampshire home. And let us not forget the immortal works of Charles Dickens, another literary luminary associated with this captivating county.

Finally, sports enthusiasts will be intrigued to learn that Hampshire boasts an unusual sporting record. During the outbreak of World War II, the FA Cup competition was suspended for seven years after Portsmouth FC’s victory in 1939. The responsibility of safeguarding the coveted trophy fell upon the city, and it found an unlikely hiding place beneath the landlord’s bed at the Bird in Hand Pub. Portsmouth FC’s fascinating tale remains an indelible part of the region’s history.
