Hampshire's Top 5 Sunset Spots
There’s no other season that delivers that golden hour glow quite like autumn.
The reds, oranges, and yellows of the season go perfectly with sunset hues, so I’m back this week to give you the best places in Hampshire to enjoy the most beautiful sunsets.
Danebury Hill Fort
Walking up this historical Iron Age fortress, situated north-west of Stockbridge and on the Test Way navigation route, will give you uninterrupted sunset views over the Test Valley.
Milford on Sea Beach
Milford on Sea
One of my favourite spots all year round, Milford on Sea looks out over the Needles and towards Christchurch.
The beach itself is nice and sheltered from the elements, decorated with colourful beach huts, and perfect for a cosy sunset picnic.
St Giles Hill
Often ignored in favour of St Catherine’s Hill, St Giles Hill gives you beautiful panoramic views of Winchester’s city centre.
If you want to prolong your walk, you could also trek over to Magdalen Hill Down Nature Reserve, which sits ‘behind’ St Giles Hill and will give you views of both St Giles Hill and St Catherine’s Hill.
Southsea Castle Lighthouse
Situated at the tip of Portsea Island, Southsea Castle and Lighthouse make a stunning backdrop to a coastal sunset.
You can start your walk at Southsea Common and continue along the sea front to catch this 16th century castle in all its golden hour glory.
Just a 45-minute walk from Beaulieu itself, this sweet little hamlet is the perfect mid-point for a sunset stroll along the Beaulieu River.
