East Hampshire AONB, Visitor & Tourism Guide



Close to Southampton and Winchester
In the county of Hampshire in south England. North east of Southampton and east of Winchester. London is an easy drive away on the M3. Part of the South Downs National Park which runs from Winchester in the west through to Eastbourne in the east.

Downland and scarp
To the 'south and west, rolling chalk downland characterised by dry valleys and dotted woodland is a natural extension of the Sussex Downs'. To the north and east there are 'heavily wooded scarp slopes which meet the Surrey and Sussex borders in heaths and woodland' (source: AONB site, link provided).

Jane Austen
The highest point is Butser Hill at 886ft (270m) above sea level. Chawton, just outside of the AONB, was the home of novelist Jane Austen.

Close to the AONB boundary is the excellent Marwell Zoological Park. A great family day out, there are tigers, giraffe, pygmy hippos, cheetas, leopards and rhinos.
