About Alton

Alton has been established for centuries, first beginning as a Roman settlement known as Vindomis and is still regarded as one of Britain's finest market towns. There's a lot to discover about Alton's past, which you can find at the Curtis Museum, which displays a wide range of artefacts. For a more literary experience, visit Jane Austen's house to discover more about the author and to see the table where she would sit and write her novels. If you're looking for an active time, check out High Sports Alton Climbing wall!
