Occupying a commanding position at the northern head of Portsmouth Harbour, and built on the site of an old Roman fort, Portchester Castle was founded in the 11th Century.
From a roman fort to a castle, palace, hunting lodge and prison to a beautiful English Heritage site today, Portchester Castle is well worth a visit
We’re at that time of year where the weather is incredibly changeable and getting your layering and kit choices right can be a minefield of unpredictability!

Buckler’s Hard is probably my favourite spot in Hampshire.
It’s a beautiful old shipbuilding village on the Beaulieu River and became so due to its protected location, tidal access to the Solent and the ready supply of timber from the Beaulieu Estate and surrounding New Forest.
A fantastic little museum and beauty spot - there really is something for everyone!
