Historic hide-and-seek and finding Nemo

Susan Nelson from Instagram’s greeneyegallery takes us on a winter walk with the children to let off some post-Christmas steam.

Our outing starts at Titchfield Abbey, dating back to the thirteenth century and now managed by English Heritage.

Open daily, 10am-5pm from April to September, and 10am-4pm from October to March, it’s free to enter. A £2 parking charge applies to non-members but that’s great value for some time playing hide-and-seek around the ancient ruins, or in the warmer months enjoying a picnic in the grounds.

We then walk to nearby Stewarts Garden Centre where you can feed the Koi Carp and take a look round the aquatic centre in search of Nemo.

This is a great place for kids to grab some lunch or a scone and a pot of tea.

Walk up the road towards Titchfield Barn past the fields of horses and crumbling ruins at the back of the Abbey. Here Fareham Borough Council have signs about local area wildlife through the seasons.

Keep walking and you arrive at Abbey Field Meadows, an outdoor play area for children opened in 2021.

There is free parking so you could always start from here – if you think your kids will ever leave a play park!
