Alton

A historic Georgian market town, displaying its heritage through the interweaving of its medieval, Tudor and Jacobean buildings, Alton offers the opportunity to immerse yourself in old-world charm, antiquity and character amidst a beautiful countryside backdrop.

Alton is home to various visitor attractions, but most notably its enchanting countryside, which has been formally recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its stunning chalk escarpments and luxurious woodlands will relieve you from the stresses of modern living and transport you to a world of uncompromised tranquillity. For more relaxing days out visit The South Downs National Park which lies just to the south.

Alton is also home to the Watercress Line steam railway, where you can visit its traditionally reformed platform to view the engines or even embark on your own adventure through Hampshire from the comfort of your own carriage. And for literature, history and interior lovers alike, both Jane Austen’s House Museum and Gilbert White’s (Pioneering 18th century naturalist) House Museum are situated nearby.

Alton has hosted traditional country markets for more than 1,000 years and does not disappoint in the modern day. A warm welcome awaits all shoppers to the famous town market held every Tuesday in the High Street, where you will find a delightful mix of stalls lined with specialty shops. Following a day of shopping, exploring, walking or cycling, you can also stop for a relaxing bite to eat in the many pubs, cafes and restaurants.
