The small commuter station of Andover is located just outside the town centre. London is just over an hour away with trains running around every 30 minutes.
As an old market town, Andover has a long and illustrious history. In the Dark Ages it was home to royal hunting lodges and six watermills. In the 18th Century Andover became a major stopping point for stagecoaches, on the main Exeter to London road, with over 30 coaches stopping every day.
Local attractions include Thruxton Motor Circuit, The Lights arts venue and the amazing Hawk Conservancy Trust which is served by a bus from the railway station between May and September. The market is still thriving twice a week on Thursday and Saturday.
