Does it cost more to book an experience through this website?

There's no need to need to shop around - we guarantee the best price for any of our featured experiences!

We’ve scoured Hampshire to bring together a great range of things to do all in one place on this website. There’s no need to spend hours searching the web. You’ll find all of these activities and experiences here and available to book, right now at the best possible prices

Since our commissions are earned from our experience providers (our Partners), there is no charge to you for our service and the price that you pay for your chosen experience will be the same as if you booked direct with that Partner.

Do you operate a review system for your experiences?

As our business grows, we are collecting reviews both here on our website (these are shown on any experiences that have been reviewed) and also here on our Google Business account

And, to finish, a few comments from those who have visited our site so far ....

It's a fantastic website with so many fab and unusual things to do, I love it! I'm going to tell everyone I know!

I've just had a quick look on your website and I'm impressed! I'm looking for a 50th birthday present for someone who has everything, so this could be very timely.

I certainly think there's a gap in the market for geographically-focused hyper personal experiences, so good luck!

I love your whole business ethos! Looks like a great company and something I'd love to look into more, so I will definitely sign up to the newsletter.

We are thrilled to be partnering with Experience Hampshire. What a great way to connect people with local artisans so they can experience the absolute delight of making something themselves. It’s also lovely for The Colour Factory Studios to become part of a bigger family of other inspiring experience destinations ‘

Great to meet yesterday and find out all about your new venture. Love the idea! It’s definitely answering a market need, particularly post-pandemic!!

Sounds just what the county needs! Somewhere to showcase some of the great things that go on in Hampshire. Congratulations on your new project

Experience Hampshire looks like a great platform!

From a Partner - I found loading the draft profile very user-friendly and having your support as a back-up is very reassuring.
