The Hampshire story

Hampshire, a county unparalleled in England, an economic powerhouse in its own right. Technology and innovation abound in aerospace, defence, marine, artificial intelligence and more with cutting edge businesses, brands and thinking. And what a fantastic place to live, both city and country, outstanding new homes alongside traditional villages with a great climate and cultural offer. It is a place with a multitude of assets and attractions, boasting three cities of which two are major ports, two National Parks, coastline, connectivity, London close by, fantastic universities, special visitor attractions and a range of businesses and brands from financial services to aerospace. However, the nature of some of these best in class businesses means they aren’t always high profile, and equally, their rural location means that many are also hidden.

The Hampshire story is a forward-looking view of what Hampshire will be for as a place, its distinctiveness and ambition. It has been created through the eyes of its stakeholders and its ‘Big Idea’ and themes provide the focus for its promotion and development. Hampshire has a compelling story to tell of growing places, businesses, brands, people and minds.
