Hampshire is a beautiful county on the southern coast of England. Hampshire’s tourist attractions include many seaside resorts, the motor museum at Beaulieu, and national parks in both the New Forest and the South Downs.
Hampshire has a long maritime history and two of England’s largest ports, Portsmouth and Southampton, lie on its coast.
The county town is Winchester, the former capital city of England.
It is the most populous ceremonial county in England excluding the metropolitan counties, with almost half of the population living within the South Hampshire conurbation which includes the cities of Southampton and Portsmouth.
Hampshire is notable for housing the birthplaces of the Royal Navy, British Army, and Royal Air Force. It is bordered by Dorset to the west, Wiltshire to the north-west, Berkshire to the north, Surrey to the north-east, and West Sussex to the east. The southern boundary is the coastline of the English Channel and the Solent, facing the Isle of Wight. It has excellent commuter links to London via road and rail.
BATH & N E SOMERSET
Bath and North East Somerset covers an area of 220 square miles, of which two thirds is green belt. It stretches from the outskirts of Bristol, south into the Mendip Hills and east to the southern Cotswold Hills and Wiltshire border. The city of Bath is the principal settlement in the district, but Banes also covers Keynsham, Midsomer Norton, Radstock Westfield and the Chew Valley.
The area has varied geography including river valleys and rolling hills. Bath developed as a spa resort in Georgian times and remains a major cultural tourism centre. It has World Heritage City status and is considered one of the most beautiful cities to live in England.
There are excellent transport links with mainline trains to London and the city is located approximately fifteen miles south of junction 18 of the M4. There is easy access to the beautiful surrounding countryside.
The beauty of the Cotswolds AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) is intertwined with that of the villages that seem almost to grow out of the landscape and the attractive small towns which are built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow limestone).
The area lies mainly within Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, but extends into parts of Wiltshire, Somerset, Worcestershire, and Warwickshire.
The hills give their name to the Cotswold. In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and the area remains affluent and has attracted discerning people who own second homes or have chosen to retire there.
There are Cotswold towns including Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud, and Winchcombe that all offer attractive locations and facilities. The Cotswolds area is one of England’s favourite destinations.
A mostly rural county Wiltshire offers some stunning scenery and pretty market towns all within easy reach of London and other major towns. Wiltshire is characterised by its high downland and wide valleys. Salisbury Plain is famous as the location of the Stonehenge and Avebury stone circles and other ancient landmarks and as the main training area in the UK of the British Army. There are numerous stunning parts of the county including the Marlborough Downs which are part of the North Wessex Downs AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), and in addition part of the Cotswolds (AONB), in the county’s northwestern corner, amongst others.
In addition several of its primary schools that feed into local prep schools such as The Godolphin, Chaffyn Grove, Sandroyd, and Salisbury Cathedral School rank as some of the best in the country. Wiltshire has twenty-nine county secondary schools, of which the largest is in Warminster. Additionally there are approximatley thirteen independent secondaries, including Marlborough College, St Mary’s Calne, and Dauntsey’s, near Devizes.
