Winchester Castle Grand Hall in Hampshire

Why retire to Hampshire?

Blue Flag beaches, nature reserves and dramatic cliffs. It's no wonder that so many people are choosing our coastal retirement properties in Hampshire. You'll find miles of sand and clear waters on Hayling Island, sailing and shingle beaches at Calshot, or grassy banks and seaside cliffs in Lee-on-the-Solent.

There are also hundreds of square miles of woodland across the New Forest National Park and South Downs National Park with endless walking and cycling trails to explore. As well as the famous New Forest wild ponies, you'll find birds of prey at the Hawk Conservancy Trust in Andover, fallow deer at the sanctuary in Bolderwood, and lizards and snakes at the New Forest Reptile Centre.

Whether you're a keen golfer or a hardened walker, you'll find lots of places to stay fit and active around the county. You can ride horses at the Burley Villa School of Riding, swim and kayak at the New Forest Water Park, or improve your game at more than 60 tennis clubs and almost 70 golf courses.

The HMS Victory at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard in Hampshire

From bustling ports to castles and museums, there’s plenty of history too. You'll find carefully conserved warships at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, centuries of royal ancestry at Winchester Castle and 16th century architecture at the Tudor House and Garden in Southampton.

If you’re looking for arts and culture, there's plenty to keep you busy. You can catch West End musicals at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton, classical music and comedy at The Anvil in Basingstoke, or dance and drama at the Kings Theatre in Portsmouth. Art lovers will enjoy the Southampton City Art Gallery and The Wykeham Gallery in Stockbridge. There’s also a range of events throughout the year, such as Art in the Garden near Romsey.
