May events in Hampshire

Pack up all the family and escape to the countryside to wander the woods of the New Forest and swim in Lymington’s sea pool. Make the most of the summer weather during the May school holidays by getting out and seeing Hampshire for yourself. If you’re not heading away with the kids, why not book a short break for the bank holiday? You’ve got the days off anyway so you might as well treat yourselves to a May holiday.

Add a special moment to your break with a unique event or day out in Hampshire. From Love your wildlife park Day to Beer, Bricks and Buses with Bursledon Brickworks, see familiar attractions in a different light by visiting one of these special events in May. If you’re planning a family holiday this is the perfect way to keep the kids entertained and make memories together. You’ve also got plenty of opportunities to celebrate the Great Outdoors with spring fairs and countryside days out.

12th May: Beer, bricks and buses at Bursledon Brickworks
