    East Hampshire is perfect walking, cycling and riding country.  Much of the area is rural, and the market towns and villages are full of interest and the local food is of excellent quality. The district is home to some of Britain's literary greats including Jane Austen and Flora Thompson. The South Downs National Park runs through centre of the district and offers more opportunity to explore the great outdoors.
