Recommendations corner:

Day out with the kids- Fabulous way to find a trip out; pick an area from the map, choose indoor/outdoor and age group and you get a list of day out/activities in the area you picked!

Hampshire Cultural Passport - a great way for the whole family to visit lots of places locally.

Huntfun- We have over 200 treasure hunts based in towns and cities around the UK and overseas. They are a great fun way to explore. By following the directions and solving the clues along the way you will have great fun exploring the streets, hunting out interesting facts and things you would ordinarily just walk straight past. You don’t need any prior knowledge of the area as all clues are solved by observation. Our hunts are pre written so all you need to do is purchase a hunt and you're set with everything you need - directions, clues a map and the answers.
You can order a printed hunt booklet, which we will post to you, or you can purchase a downloadable hunt to print yourself, ideal if you are looking for something to do today! If you are already out and about, we also have downloads suitable for web browsing mobile phones, including i-phones. We would suggest a hunt will take about two hours to complete however they can easily take 1/2 or even a full day if stops are made along the way to visit museums, shops and to have café breaks and lunch

Pregnant/Childrens parties/cakes etc.
