The picturesque market town of Andover, in the Test Valley, with its attractive high street and narrow walkways, dates back to Saxon times. Most of the town's buildings are from the 18th century when it was an important stopover for coaches on their way to London, Southampton and Oxford.
The main High Street has a good cross-section of chain stores and local shops providing for most shoppers' needs. The town centre also has a host of old pubs and restaurants offering a range of dining options. The Chantry Shopping Centre is a vibrant place to visit.
With its centuries-old history, Andover has some interesting museums such as Andover Museum and The Museum of the Iron Age. The Museum of Army Flying and the Museum of Army Chaplaincy show the influence that the army still has on local life.
