Museum
“Andover's Iron Age Museum is a must see - it's free entry and a great place for children. Most of the finds from the famous Danebury Hill Fort can be found here as well as a Roman Mosaic, and the history of Andover as an old market town.”

Lake
“There are only short walks in Andover itself, but this one is a little more 'wild' than the others and we like it for a simple stroll. For real hiking you would have to go further away but it's not a bad bet if you're just looking for some fresh air.”
