We all know and love our Hampshire, but there are a few more of them around the world. Join us as we wander around them…

Hampshire, UK

We all know this Hampshire; it’s the one we call home! Take a wander through Buriton in Street View above.


New Hampshire, USA

Part of the New England region in the north east of the United States is New Hampshire, the fifth smallest state. It borders Quebec in Canada, as well as Maine, Massachusetts and Vermont. Take a stroll through the White Mountain National Forest on Street View.


Hampshire, Canada

Located on Prince Edward Island, near New Brunswick and Nova Scotia is Hampshire, a municipality incorporated in 1974 with a population of just over 400. There’s not much to see, but take a walk around the place above.


Hampshire, Illinois

This village, located in Kane County has a population of around 6,000 and covers approximately 9 square miles. Village President Jeff Magnussen was elected to serve a fourth term in April 2017. Notable former residents include Annabel Marsh; she was the oldest women to run right across the United States, starting in Boston and ending in San Francisco. Wander through the lovely little place above.


Hampshire, Tennessee

Heading south now and into Tennessee is the unincorporated community of Hampshire in Maury County. Around 1,400 people live there and the community’s motto is ‘Neighbors oe’r the Hills’. It also looks a beautiful place, as you can see above.
