Around Rose Bowl

Home to Hampshire County Cricket Club since 2001, Rose Bowl is located in the village of West End, on the outskirts of Southampton. You can find a small but fascinating local history museum housed in the Old Fire Station, while visitors can also enjoy two welcoming pubs, West End Brewery and The Master Builder, with its roaring, open fire. Just 20 minutes away in the car, South Downs National Park is a magnet for walkers thanks its dramatic chalk cliffs and picture-postcard English countryside vistas.

Discover Southampton's history

Hop on the number 8 bus from the Rose Bowl and you can be in Hampshire's largest city in less than half an hour. Southampton has a long maritime history, and the revamped SeaCity Museum is home to fascinating exhibitions chronicling the Titanic disaster and the city's role in the British naval empire. In the Old Town, you can find the longest surviving stretch of medieval walls in England, alongside a number of well-preserved timber-framed Tudor buildings.

Walk the New Forest

The Rose Bowl is only 15 minutes' drive from one of England's best-loved national parks. The New Forest's lush woodland is best explored by bike, and many visitors cycle the popular Sway and Setthorns Loop. Stop off in Lyndhurst, one of the New Forest's many charming villages, for a hearty pub lunch.
