Things To Do In Half Term In Hampshire


If you are looking for ways to occupy the children during half term a visit to the New Forest is a must! Outdoor activities may mean a few extra layers towards the end of the year but you’ll soon warm up with all the activities on offer!

If you are planning on hiring a VW camper from us a great place to visit is the Sandy Balls holiday centre. Nestled deep in the New Forest Sandy Balls is a true treasure of the area and long time family favourite. Take your VW camper on a little tour of the forest and park up in one of the holiday centre’s 5 star, fully or super serviced pitches close to the main piazza and complete with water and electricity hook up and drainage.

Sandy Balls really is a complete holiday, with sports and games, creative activities, organised days out around the area, water sports and activities, explorations and tours of the forest, leisure club on site, spa, and so much more.

If you fancy pitching up your camper elsewhere and exploring the area yourselves why not pop along to the world famous Sir Harold Hiller Gardens in Romsey, Hampshire. The Hiller gardens are a sight to behold in every season with stunning displays stretching over 180 acres including the curious Himalayan Valley, Bog Garden and iconic Centenary Border as well as many other themed areas to explore.

Huge varieties of plants and trees are on display with plenty of information to learn about each. The Sir Harold Hillier Gardens also houses a Champion Tree collection, a group of trees though to be the biggest, widest, or oldest of its type. The 2011 Tree Register lists the gardens as having the largest number of champion trees in the British Isles, truly a sight to behold! You can find out more about the gardens via their website by clicking here.
