Experience Hampshire is the gatekeeper for Hampshire’s best kept secrets. Our mission is to become the go-to platform for locals and visitors to seek out, book and take part in original Hampshire-based activities and experiences. Whether you are an adventurer, an explorer, creative, or just curious, we have something for you. We hand-pick unique activity providers, artisans, hosts and local experts who offer their bespoke collection of experiences to our customers through our online portal.

Based in Winchester, our tight-knit team know every nook and cranny in this shire and are keen to continue building relationships with local experience providers who would be a perfect match for our directory. Our online portal adopts the very latest technology which enables us to provide both our customer and Partner communities with a seamless, easy-to-use and intuitive discovery, reservation and booking journey. Meaning our Partners say “hello” to new business customers and our customers say “goodbye” to unoriginal weekends.
