    Hampshire Facts – Did You Know…

    1. All At Sea
      With its historic dockyards and famous coastline, Hampshire has long had sea-going ties. Pirates, smugglers, Olympic medallists and one of the main departure points for the D-Day invasion that marked the turning of WWII. However, two of Hampshire most famous naval stories are that of the Mayflower and the Titanic. Setting sail from Southampton in September 1620, The Mayflower successfully carried 102 pilgrims looking to start a new life in the colonies to escape religious persecution. The ‘unsinkable’ Titanic didn’t fair so well, leaving Southampton on the 10th of April 1912, she hit an iceberg and sank carrying 3,327 passengers and crew.
    2. Great Sausage!
      One of the finest events on Hampshire’s calendar, the Great Hampshire Sausage and Pie Competition attracts thousands of visitors who get to sample the finest pies, bangers and also tuck into meatballs and black pudding, with options for vegetarians and vegans too. It’s every bit as delicious as it sounds and worth adding to your yearly planner.
    3. More Great Grub
      Loved by school children across the country, the humble fish finger began life in the county. Having first found ‘herring savouries’ in America, Clarence Birdseye tested his own version of the savoury snack on the people of Southampton, along with a comparatively bland cod variant as a control. The locals preferred the cod snack and school dinners have never looked back. Hampshire has also produced a number of award-winning wines and sparkling wines, some winning titles ahead of French champagnes.
    4. Gin-credible!
      If sausages and fish fingers don’t tempt your perhaps more discerning palate, then you might be interested to know that Bombay Saphire Gin is made here, you can even book a tour of the distillery and try samples. “Sign me up!”
    5. War Effort
      Since the Vikings rocked up, the Hampshire coast has been the frontline of many conflicts.
      A number of forts were built to defend against invasion from Napoleon, the coast was also at the front during WWII. Spitfires were invented, first built and first flew here. The county was the largest gathering point of the D-Day landings and the first command to launch was given in Hampshire. Southampton was also a key port during the Falklands conflict. Another important location is Farnborough Airport which was the site of the first powered flight in the UK and home to a number of key defence services including the Army Balloon Factory and considered to be the birthplace of the RAF.
    6. You Can Always Go, Downton
      The stunning countryside and historic towns lend themselves well for movie making and Highclere Castle has become a major attraction since it was used as the setting of the smash hit TV show Downton Abbey.
    7. Sweet FA
      Portsmouth FC are FA cup record holders. ‘Pompey’ won the cup in 1939 before the tournament was suspended for 7 years due to the outbreak of WWII. Portsmouth retained the title for those seven years and were responsible for keeping the cup safe. It was moved several times and was even kept under the bed of the landlord of the Bird in the Hand pub.
      The term ‘sweet FA’ also comes from Hampshire. The gruesome murder of local girl Fanny Adams in August 1867 made national headlines. Local sailors of the day with their dark humour took to referring to their new tinned rations with its dubious meat content as ‘Sweet Fanny Adams’.
    8. Great Kings
      Winchester is associated with two of Britain’s greatest kings, one real, one legendary. Alfred the Great, whose  vision was to unite the various kingdoms into a single England, made the city his capital. The city’s Great Hall is also home to what is claimed to be King Arthur’s round table. Measuring 5.5 metres, it hangs on the walls of the hall although has been dated back to the 13th century, long after Arthur is presumed to have performed his famous deeds.

    About Hampshire

    The county’s name derives from Southampton. Originally called ‘Hamtun’, which roughly translates as ‘village-town’, the scīr was added to denote the name of the county. Famed for its naval roots, the county is still the home of the Royal Navy and saw the famous voyages of both the Titanic and the Mayflower.

    Other famous historic links include the capital city of Alfred the Great, the king who created the vision of a single kingdom of England, uniting the separate factions of Mercia, Wessex, Northumbria, Cent, Anglia and the Danelaw areas controlled by the invading Vikings who put down roots and set up communities. It was the birthplace of the Spitfire, the plane attributed with winning the Battle of Britain and also the main launching point for the D-Day landings.

    Today the fighting is long gone, instead the county of rolling hills and glorious countryside including two national parks produces award-winning wines and has some major attractions making it hugely popular with tourists and day trippers. New Forest ponies, muntjac deer, wild boar, mink and otters can all be found in the county which has a number of protected conservation areas. The warmer than average climate also makes it a hub for agriculture, both traditional and experimental and it’s an important area for UK food production. It’s also one of England’s most affluent counties with above average house prices, employment levels and earnings.

Winchester Cathedral and the many historic sites in the town are also well worth a visit.


    Southampton is home to 3 cruise terminals and is the UK’s premier port for cruise ships handling 500 ships and over 2,000,000 passengers. The city’s airport, Southampton International, is also a major gateway with services across Europe and beyond. It was the site of the first flight of the iconic Spitfire. The major motorways are the M3 which runs up through Surrey where it meets with the M25, while the M27 connects Southampton and Portsmouth, leading on to Chichester and Brighton (as the A27). A large number of towns and cities offer services into London with average commutes from the county taking under an hour.
