Situated between Chichester and Portsmouth on the south coast, Havant is a thriving market town that is known for its Georgian properties and charming winding roads, known as ‘twittens’.

Find Your Place
One of the most popular natural attractions in Havant is Staunton Country Park. It’s a great place for families looking for a memorable day out, boasting a vast greenhouse packed with exotic plants, a maze and an Ornamental Farm. The 13-mile Staunton Way walk in the South Downs National Park is a wonderful way to get out into nature, while the Farlington Marshes follows the coast and is a wonderful nature reserve filled with lagoons and pools. This part of the Southern coast offers extensive cycling and walking routes, along with a number of options in terms of water sports.
