Andover High Street 

Just outside of the Chantry Centre sits Andover’s historical core. Georgian architecture and a grand Guildhall offer a stunning town centre landscape. The High Street boasts a range of shops including small independents, many of which can be found by walking down the lanes that run off the main pedestrian route.  

The High Street hosts a series of events throughout the year, including Four Fun Friday activities for children during August and regular artisan markets.

The River Anton Way 

The River Anton is an important natural chalk stream, which runs partway through the centre of town and is home to a diverse array of wildlife. Walkers have enjoyed the short River Anton Way for many years and in 2015 the route was extended to offer 10 miles of scenic walking from Charlton Lakes, through Andover and leading onto Chilbolton. For those wishing to take a stroll and admire the crystal clear waters, finger posts and information boards make for easy navigation along the way.
