Area: The historic village of Wickham, nestled in the heart of the glorious Meon Valley countryside, is home to a vibrant and lively community.
At its center is a delightful medieval square and surrounding it are a host of interesting and quirky independent shops, as well as very popular and quaint tea rooms like Lilly’s traditional tea and coffee house.
There are several restaurants and pubs in the village, including Greens restaurant, which features a secret garden leading down to a brook and a facility where you can phone the restaurant from the garden and they bring your order out to you!
Wickham is a particularly lovely place to start and end a long days walking or cycling in the Meon Valley and the old disused Meon Valley railway is a popular route for many people wishing to explore the glorious surrounding countryside.
The high street itself provides lovely examples of Georgian architecture and also picture postcard cottages dating back to the 15th century. A visit to Chesapeake Mill, the Water Meadows of Wickham, the unique gift and jewelry shops or the art galleries are some examples of the individuality of Wickham.
The community spirit of the village is evident within the Wickham summer music festival, providing a showcase for a wide variety of big names in music – an event which people attend from far and wide across the country, buying their tickets way in advance.
Situated very close to Fareham with all the convenience of a nearby town, yet also within easy reach of Portsmouth, Winchester and Chichester, Wickham is a very sought after location.
