Handily situated near Hayling Island, Havant is a great place to indulge your love for shopping. The town has a choice of high street favourites, independent stores and a twice-weekly market. It serves up some fantastic dining options too, with a choice of tea rooms and traditional pubs dotted throughout its lovely Georgian centre.
Featuring a museum, exhibition space and theatre, the town’s popular Spring Arts and Heritage Centre offers visitors the chance to explore Havant’s past, while regular performances here showcase the latest in live theatre, music and poetry.
On Havant’s outskirts lies Staunton Country Park, a 1,000-acre natural wonderland where you’ll find lakes, meadows and woodlands alongside heaps of family-friendly attractions. Visit the huge Victorian Glasshouse and witness colourful tropical plants, venture into a deviously tricky maze or call in at the farm and enjoy up-close encounters with alpaca, donkeys and ponies.
