Other Activities Around Havant Leisure Centre
Look no further than Hayling Island, Portsmouth or Chichester for the usual activities like Old Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard or the Gothic Cathedral in Chichester. But if you have already seen those and want something a little different, why not try the Iron Age Settlement at Butser (north on the A3) or Queen Elizabeth Country Park a little further on. Butser is an archeological site and farm - but during the summer and on select weekends holds Roman re-enactments - 'Acta est Fabula, Plaudite!'
