Set in beautiful southern England, Havant is on the rural coast between the cities of Chichester and Portsmouth.
Havant is a thriving market town, characterised by its fine Georgian buildings and narrow weaving footpaths called ‘Twittens’. Most of the town centre is a conservation area, which developed from a junction of ancient thoroughfares dating from Roman times. You can find out more about the town’s past by visiting the Spring Arts Centre on East Street.
On Tuesday and Saturday there is a lively street market. The town centre is also home to a modern indoor shopping mall which fronts onto an attractive pedestrian precinct in part of West Street, with an interesting blend of specialist retailers and high street names.
One of Havant’s most popular attractions is the award-winning Staunton Country Park. A great family day out with plenty to see and do, including a huge greenhouse with exotic plants, a maze and the children will just love feeding the animals at the Ornamental Farm.
If you want a breath of fresh air, try walking the 13-mile Staunton Way that finishes at the Queen Elizabeth Country Park in the beautiful South Downs National Park.
Located nearby is the picturesque fishing village of Emsworth, and the traditional seaside resort Hayling Island, which is well-known for its unspoilt beaches and laidback charm.
