Stay at Park Holidays' Solent Breezes holiday park and you can enjoy glorious views and shingle beaches, the tranquility of the New Forest, or head inland for city visits to Portsmouth, Southampton and Winchester.
It's just a short drive from Solent Breezes to the closest beach at Lee-on-the-Solent - a shingle stretch with a gentle slope into the sea. It's a great spot, with all sorts of activities available for booking.
Portsmouth, less than 30 minutes away, is an historic naval city that has undergone a major makeover. The city is vibrant and modern, and still in touch with its rich maritime history. Highlights include the Spinnaker Tower, the Naval Dockyards and the Mary Rose Museum, dedicated to Henry VIII's favourite warship.
Just a few miles away is Southampton, best known as the UK's cruise capital but a fascinating destination in its own right. The list of attractions is impressive and diverse, and includes the Sea City Museum, the spitfire inspired Solent Sky, the award-winning City Art Gallery and an Old Town featuring a refurbished timber-framed Tudor House and Gardens.
A short drive round the Solent Estuary is the New Forest, once a hunting ground for England's Kings, and now a national park famous for its roaming ponies and stunning views. Explore the many forest trails and enjoy the picture-box pretty villages of this popular location.
It takes around 45 minutes to reach Winchester, an ancient capital of England and the base of King Arthur - a copy of his iconic round table hangs in the city's medieval castle. Other notable sights include the cathedral, the river walk along the Itchen and the UK's largest farmers market.
