There are plenty of things to do in Andover, an attractive market town in the north of the beautiful Test Valley in Hampshire and has a rich heritage dating back to Saxon times.

During the 18th century the town was an important stop-over route for stagecoaches between London, Salisbury and Exeter yet the nearby Iron Age settlement of Danebury Hill Fort and the Roman remains of the Fullerton Mosaic provide insights into Andover’s more ancient past.  

The Andover Museum and Museum of the Iron Age explore this fascinating history in detail while the mosaics of the Andover Time Ring and the colourful Test Valley Tapestry pay modern tribute to Andover’s heritage.

The Museum of Army Flying at Middle Wallop outlines the important role Andover played in two World Wars and the town’s RAF links while there’s more history to explore at nearby Whitchurch Silk Mill and Highclere Castle

For walkers and nature lovers, don’t miss the lovely Test Way walking trail or the Hawk Conservancy Trust and its 150 different birds of prey. 

For arts and entertainment in Andover there’s a lively programme of music, dance, theatre and children’s events at The Lights or the exhibitions and activities at the nearby Fairground Craft and Design Centre.
