The list of the top 25 most chilled out staycation locations in the UK have been revealed, with two Hampshire cities making the list.

Southampton and Winchester both made the cut, with Southampton coming in 10th place and Winchester in 20th.

Camper rental company PaulCamper conducted the research and identified a number of factors to judge how stress-free a place was.

This included tourist figures, green spaces, average rainfall and number of Covid cases.

In the end the Gloucestershire town of Cirencester took the top spot, with Bourton-on-the-Water, also in the county coming second.

With strict and expensive restrictions making a holiday abroad difficult for many, PaulCamper wanted to people find a holiday spot closer to home where they could escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Here’s a few things to do in the cities themselves.

Things to do in Southampton

The sea port city has many places to seek out and enjoy a day at.

This includes the John Hansard Gallery displaying contemporary art, the Tudor House & Garden displaying over 800 years of history in one location, and the ruins of the Holyrood Church which was bombed during the blitz in World War II.

Winchester also has lots to offer for those thinking of staying in the city.

An obvious choice would be a visit to the Cathedral, but there’s a lot more to see than just that.

For families you have the Winchester Science and Planetarium, Marwell Zoo and the Beaulieu National Motor Museum.

Winchester is also close to the South Downs Way, with the Winchester City Mill being the official gateway to it.

If you fancy a bit of hiking it would be perfect.
