Chantry Street, which starts at the foot of St Mary's church, links Andover's Upper High Street and Marlborough Street with West Street, all one-way thoroughfares. Andover's town centre amenities are literally on the doorstep, whilst Andover College, The Lights theatre, Odeon Cinema, and Leisure Centre are all a short distance away. The mainline railway station runs a direct route to London's Waterloo in just over an hour, whilst the nearby A303 offers good road access to both London and the West Country. Open countryside is never far away from Andover with outlying villages to explore in all directions.
