There are good transport links (you can commute to the centre of London in just over an hour), miles of countryside and plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants for you to get a real taste for life in Whitchurch.
The last weekend of January brings the arrival of one of the most wonderfully named events we’ve ever heard of, Hampshire Potato Day, because who doesn’t want a day to celebrate potatoes?!? If you’re not so green fingered there are other local societies and clubs including a bowls club, squash club, cricket team, football team, running club and an amateur theatre group who put on a number of productions each year.
The other big event of the year is the Whitchurch Festival Fête and Procession which brings together good food, good drinks and good friends.
On the B3400 and bypassed by the slightly busier A34 (that diverts lorries away from the town), Whitchurch is within 13 miles of Basingstoke, Newbury, Winchester and just 19 miles from Southampton with its big shops, No1 theatre, international airport and cruise terminal. London commuters can be at Waterloo Station in 1 hr and 8 minutes.
