Walk

All across Hampshire, Southampton and Portsmouth there are a number of fantastic social walks that happen weekly, and there are always opportunities to start up more. In addition, we are lucky to have excellent parks and quiet residential areas to walk in, whether you are walking as part of a group, with family or friends, by yourself or as part of the school run.
