UK Removals | Moving to Havant
Set in beautiful southern county of Hampshire, Havant is located between Portsmouth and Chichester. It’s a thriving market town, characterised by Georgian architecture and ‘Twittens’, or winding footpaths that weave through the town centre. There’s a lively street market every Tuesday and Saturday; and 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.

Beachfront Experience in Havant
Movers regularly talk about the excellent sailing in Havant. South of town is Hayling Island, which is home to four sailing clubs – also with public slipways for owning and launching smaller sized boats. There are also dedicated windsurfing areas along the seafront and in Langstone Harbour. If getting wet doesn’t take your fancy, enjoy a walk or cycle down the pathway whilst taking-in the fresh sea breeze.
Having worked up an appetite after a waterspout activity or relaxing walk, movers recommend two waterside pubs. The Ship Inn and The Royal Oak. Both offer very high quality catering, coupled with superb views. Then there’s Lavender Tea rooms , which has an elegant, quirky and vintage aesthetic. The menu features dishes such as coronation chicken, high tea and the likes of gin and tonic cupcakes.
There’s also a good variety of places to eat out in the evening too. Movers recommend the Robin Hood, which serves traditional, hearty pub food. Alternatively, broaden your horizons and try the Red Chilli, an authentic Bangladesh-styled restaurant; serving Bangladeshi and Indian cuisine with a twist.
The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre has developed a reputation in the town for providing great music, theatre and entertainment experiences. It’s a popular venue with the local community, and is a great place to meet people, and get involved in community groups and events. There’s also a cafe, and a museum integrated into the site, so it’s well worth getting acquainted with this unique facility.
