A vast history can be enjoyed at some of the fascinating heritage attractions, such as the Gothic 13th century ruins of Netley Abbey, which was frequented by the likes of Jane Austen and artist JMW Turner, and is rumoured to be haunted! Netley Chapel in Royal Victoria Country Park is all that remains of the first purpose built hospital opened in the second half of the 19th century. The hospital pioneered the treatment of shell shock during the first world war, with one of the patients being Wilfred Owen! Read about its history within the chapel itself.

In the early 20th century, Strawberry fields stretched across much of the Hamble Valley, in particular Botley, Hedge End and Bursledon, with the industry supplying the hotels and restaurants across the UK. Trains, known as "Strawberry Specials", from Botley station took many thousands of pounds of strawberries daily to London, Glasgow, Cardiff and Manchester.
