A county with a wonderful variety of landscapes, from bustling port cities, rich in nautical history, to the natural beauty of deciduous forest, coastline with chalky cliffs and miles of beaches. The New Forest is magnificent with moorland between woodland and pretty villages; lovely for wandering, riding and picnicking. Buzzing resorts have good sandy beaches and are havens for boating and other watersports.
