Things To Do In Hampshire This Weekend | 2 APRIL 2021

This week Things to do in Hampshire This Weekend 2 April 2021 is a special one. The Government’s next stage of the roadmap unlocked visits to friends and families in gardens this week.

Five walks for the Easter weekend with other people! Let’s go, Spring is finally here!

Things to do in Hampshire 2 April 2021

What a relief, the 29 March Government’s roadmap went ahead – did you hear the collective sigh of relief across the UK? It was audible, right? Never have I ever been so happy to be able to travel locally.

A very happy #RuleOf6 day to you, and if it means you’re seeing your friends and family for the first time in a while, well I’m so happy for you and I hope you make the most of it.

Looks like the weather’s going to stay sunny too, if Good Friday’s sunshine is any indication of the rest of the weekend!

Things To Do In Hampshire 2 April 2021 is all about getting outside with your friends and family and enjoying a little slice of normality.

To make the most of the weather, and the new rules, I’ve picked five walks across Hampshire that you can now try because we can travel locally. Wahoo!

I’ve tried all of these walks and can highly recommend them and if you click the titles it will take you to a blog post about them with all the details.

Hampshire Walks

Here’s five walks in Hampshire to discover…

1. Walk Around Portchester Castle

Heritage, ruins, the sea, views of the Spinnaker Tower and Portsdown Hill and flat enough to cater for all abilities.

About an hour, more if you choose to extend it.

2. Walk Swanick Lakes Nature Reserve

Secluded and about an hour if you do all the trails. This is a great walk for families, people who like to fish and trail runners.

3. Walk Gull Coppice and Whiteley Woods

A 45 minute walk on fairly flat accessible trails. Great for all the family, those with mobility needs, parents with pushchairs and kids who want to run riot on their scooters, skates and boards.

Or adults actually, why should kids have all the fun? As a proud new owner of roller skates (TikTok made me do it) these paths are incredible if you’re practising a new skill. Just avoid the coppice and woodland sections obviously!

It’s very inclusive and can be extended on a network of other paved paths in the area, one end leads to the playground behind Whiteley Shopping Centre. Again, great if you have kids in your group.

4. Walk the River Hamble from Warsash

This walk is stunning and very popular on sunny days. If you want to feel like you’re in another country, head here when it’s sunny!

Three routes, a short, medium and long version depending on what you’re looking for. This can be anything from an hour to more than four hours. Click the link in the title to find out more.

5. Walk Titchfield Canal

Upwards of an hour and a half, more if you want to extend the route along the seafront.

It’s an incredibly little walk, along the nature reserve, look out for the birds and animals in the farmland along the route.

Walking in Hampshire

There’s so many great walks in Hampshire and I’ll be adding more moving forward, especially now we can travel locally again.

Anyway, this is a short and sweet post, as you need to be enjoying the new rules, the sunshine, Easter eggs and any additional time off if you have it.

šŸ£ Happy Easter! šŸ£

What to expect from ‘Things To Do In Hampshire This Weekend’ posts

At the beginning of 2021 I turned my regular Friday Instagram Stories recommendations into a blog post for the new year.

Every Friday I share five things across Hampshire for you to do, eat or visit. Normally my suggestions cover everything from events and places to explore to places to eat and drink at.

I started this series out of lockdown and in under a week we were back under lock and key. But, I haven’t let that stop me still coming up with plenty of ideas for a bit of light relief in lockdown.

It’s one of the only places on my blog where I’ll share things I like the look of but, I may not have tried and tested. It’s nice to support businesses or places you’re yet to visit. After all, I can’t be everywhere all the time! Or can I? Knowing me, I will try!

For guidelines and what to expect from this blog post every week, read the first in the seriesā€¦
