Highclere Castle

Highclere Park, Highclere, Newbury RG20 9RN

Downtown Abbey bought this beautiful building into the spotlight all the way back in 2010, and ever since, tourists from all over the world have flocked to this country estate in north Hampshire for a photo opportunity. 

The New Forest

The New Forest covers quite a large area of Hampshire, 71,474-acres to be precise, and the abundance of nature makes it one of the most beautiful places to take photos. From woodlands evocative of fairytales to the fields home to the iconic New Forest Ponies, there are plenty of things to snap for your Instagram feed or photo album.

The Fulling Mill, Alresford SO24 9TA

If you fall head over heels for cute chocolate box cottages and everything #cottagecore, then a trip to Arlesford is a must, especially to The Fulling Mill, a beautiful property that was built for the fulling of cloth.

Jane Austen's House

Winchester Rd, Chawton, Alton GU34 1SD

Literature buffs will not want to pass up the opportunity to take a photo (or a reel like Hampshire resident @livbythebook!) in front of the home of arguably the most influential female writer of all time. There's a little corner of Instagram called Bookstagram where bookworms share their love for all things literature, and you can be sure to find this property and the close by Chawton House featuring.

Stoke Fruit Farm Shop

77 Havant Rd, Hayling Island PO11 0PT

Be sure to visit Stoke Fruit Farm Shop during the Sunflower picking season when the fields are ablaze with the colour of joyful sunshine. It's the perfect photo opportunity for Instagram or to capture a family day out amongst beautiful flowers. 

Cheyney Court

3 The Cl, Winchester SO23 9LT

This historical area in Winchester just oozes charm. It's also been said that the property is the most photographed domestic building in Winchester, which is no surprise as there is such a storybook quality to these old abodes.


Mottisfont Ln, Mottisfont, Romsey SO51 0LP

This romantic garden and country house owned by the National Trust is positively stunning in the summer and is the perfect backdrop for a photo or a reel for Instagram.

Spinnaker Tower

Portsmouth PO1 3TT

Whether it's a drone shot, a photo from within looking over Portsmouth or an action shot abseiling down the side of Spinnaker Tower; there's no denying that this modern landmark is worthy of a place on any Instagram feed.

West Green House Gardens

Thackham's Ln, West Green, Hook RG27 8JB

The Moongate that frames the Nymphaeum in the gardens is a particularly pretty spot to take a photo, especially when the flowers are in bloom during summer.

Basingstoke Canal

This canal feels like it has the quintessential countryside charm. The languid weeping willow and the small bridge leading to a country house is the perfect composition for a landscape photo or if you want to add a person into the mix perhaps have them walk over the bridge.

Exbury Gardens 

Frolic through the Exbury Gardens for a stunning Instagram reel, or head over to the Azalea Bowl for an idyllic backdrop for a solo photo or a romantic shot with a loved one
