Living in Hampshire

Alton’s a thriving market town in the beautiful county of Hampshire. It’s incredibly popular with residents and tourists alike because it blends historic buildings with modern shops and delightful arcades. It’s particularly popular with shoppers; especially on Tuesdays when the town hosts its famous market.

Our retirement properties in Alton are only a short walk away from a Waitrose, so it’s easy to pick up your groceries and essentials. The established High Street is also only 250 yards from the development. Here you’ll find a great range of shops and amenities, including a Costa Coffee, an M&S Simply Food and several restaurants.

If you’re looking for history and culture, head to the Curtis Museum, which is home to one of the finest local history collections in Hampshire. It explores 100 million years of the region’s past and artefacts include a Roman enamel cap and ancient Saxon burials. You can also visit the Church of St Lawrence, which was part of the civil war. If you look closely during your visit, you’ll still be able to see bullet holes in the door.

If you like to get out and explore, then the circular walking trail from Chawton to Upper Farringdon is perfect. Chawton is the former home of Jane Austen and the literary walk takes you past places that she knew. If you fancy something a little more challenging, take the Writers’ Way Walk. But, for something more relaxing, you can take the Watercress Line steam railway, which passes through the lush countryside and provides enviable views.

It’s also easy to get out and about when you leave our retirement properties in Alton. From Alton train station, you can reach London Waterloo in only an hour. Closer by, Alton is on the main bus route to Winchester and surrounding locations.
