Welcome to Alresford

Alresford is the perfect place for strolling and there is plenty to please the eye – from the beautiful Georgian centre of fine colour-washed buildings, The Fulling Mill and riverside walks, St. John’s Parish Church, The Millennium Trail and Old Alresford Pond, created by Bishop de Lucy, Bishop of Winchester in the 12th century.



Here are some of our personal favourite hangouts, in the Alresford area.

Visit Alresford’s range of specialist shops or stop for refreshment in one of its tea rooms, pubs or restaurants, but don’t miss the Watercress Line steam railway that runs from Alresford to Alton through 10 miles of beautiful countryside.

Charters are also located in the cathedral city of Winchester and other thriving market towns of Alton and Farnham. These locations are well positioned to reach the coast, as indeed they also are to reach many major towns such as Basingstoke and Reading to the north, and Southampton, Portsmouth and Bournemouth to the south. It is also well worth noting the myriad of pretty villages and beautiful countryside that Hampshire has to offer.

Although all locations are within comfortable reach of the London airports, they are just short journeys from the airports at Southampton and Bournemouth, providing both domestic, and an increasing number of international flights. Should flying not appeal, you can always reach the continent by sea from either Portsmouth or Southampton. Both Winchester and Alton have fast and frequent railway services to London Waterloo, with the journeys taking approximately 55 minutes.
