March events in Hampshire

With Mother’s Day at the end of the month, now’s the time to focus on family. Make your March holiday by visiting Hampshire with your parents or gather together extended family for a long weekend break. Spring brings colour back to the New Forest as the birds return and the trees show their green leaves once again.

Lace up your walking boots, grab a sturdy coat and head out into the fresh air of the New Forest. Whether you’re walking, cycling or trotting through the trees, there’s plenty of wildlife to see. Keep your eyes peeled for birds, ponies and even deer and soak up the amazing cycle of the seasons all around you. Stay in Lymington for the best of both worlds; visit pretty harbours whilst having the New Forest on your doorstep. 


Plan something special for your trip with a visit to one of these events in Hampshire this March:

Throughout March: The Lost Tapestries at The Vyne

Throughout March: The open exhibition at the St Barbe Museum and Art gallery

3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th March: Lymington Market

4th March: Hayling Island Horticultural Show

4th March: Oakhaven half marathon

10th to 11th March: Superhero weekend at Winchester Science Museum

17th to 18th March: DIY Live Science shows with BBC Presenter Jon Chase

From 31st March: New Forest Canoe Easter egg hunts



Plan a stay in Hampshire for March and expect cool spring days out in the fields or exploring the woods. Little ones will love playing in the trees or on the beaches. Take a leaf out of our book and have a go at all the things you can do on the beach – at any time of the year. They’ll be sure to get your little family engaged in the great outdoors and make for some lovely holiday activities back at your holiday cottage. For a couples break, have a go at a tricky recipe while you have the time (and the access to a gorgeous kitchen), you’re other half will appreciate your efforts and probably offer to do the washing up too. Hampshire is perfect for a short break whether over the weekend or mid week. A holiday doesn’t have to be a 2 week slog, a few days away is sometimes all you need.


Your holiday doesn’t have to end in March. Come back to one of our Hampshire holiday lets for a break at any time of the year.
