Here are some of our personal favourite hangouts, in the Alton area.

For history lovers, the Curtis Museum has one of the finest local history collections in Hampshire, housing impressive Anglo Saxon and Roman artifacts as well as a childhood gallery packed with toys, books and dolls from the 18th century. Literary lovers will also enjoy the nearby village of Chawton, famously home of Jane Austen.

Charters are also located in the cathedral city of Winchester and other thriving market towns of Alresford and Farnham. These locations are well positioned to reach the coast, as indeed they also are to reach many major towns such as Basingstoke and Reading to the north, and Southampton, Portsmouth and Bournemouth to the south. It is also well worth noting the myriad of pretty villages and beautiful countryside that Hampshire has to offer.

Although all locations are within comfortable reach of the London airports, they are just short journeys from the airports at Southampton and Bournemouth, providing both domestic, and an increasing number of international flights. Should flying not appeal, you can always reach the continent by sea from either Portsmouth or Southampton. Both Winchester and Alton have fast and frequent railway services to London Waterloo, with the journeys taking approximately 55 minutes.
