July events in Hampshire

Enjoy an early summer with a Hampshire holiday in July. Plan a weekend away before the school summer holidays to see the sights without the crowds in the way. Visit Lymington for a seaside fix or head for the New Forest to stomp along the paths as the sun shines through the green canopies above. 

Hampshire is a lovely place to visit for a July holiday. With a good mix between city, countryside and coastal area, there’s so much to do. In the summer, make the most of the lush green landscapes by heading outdoors for long walks along leafy lanes. Grab your significant other, pack a picnic and head out for the day. Find yourselves a pretty copse to sit and enjoy your feast and each other’s company. The perfect peaceful break you need right before all your big summer plans begin.


For an added extra to your break, visit some of these events across Hampshire this July: 

9th July: Simply Jaguar day at Beaulieu

12th July: Outdoor theatre at Mottisfont
