Which Hampshire do you want to visit? Perhaps it’s the clotted-cream-and-scone version, where you tour the villages of the New Forest, pausing in quaint tearooms while ponies frolic outside. Maybe it’s the surf and sand one – the swathe of gorgeous coastline includes Hayling Island, the epicentre of windsurfing, so there’s no excuse not to don a wetsuit and get out on the water.

Then there’s urban Hampshire – you’ll find retail therapy at Southampton’s West Quay mall, and there are designer bargains to be had at Portsmouth’s Gunwharf Quays outlet village. There’s no time to waste – Hampshire’s waiting for you.
