Camper van hire Havant, Hampshire

Kamper Hire HQ is situated in the town of Havant, which sits between Portsmouth city and Chichester. You may want to hit the road in your shiny new VW, but before you perhaps set off further afield on your campervan adventure, you should definitely explore at least some of the gems that are on Portsmouth’s doorstep.

Campervanning on Hayling Island

Those who have visited or are local to the area know that Hayling Island is an absolute must-see destination in East Hampshire. Only a 10 minute drive from our Havant pick up point, you can experience the laid back vibes and unspoilt beaches of this resort island. Famed as a windsurfing mecca, there is ample opportunity to immerse yourself into the sport, either using your own equipment or hiring locally from places such as Sandy Point Watersports. You will fit into the beach scene perfectly in your stylish VW campervan. For day trips, park up the camper in one of the all day car parks and explore the 3 miles of blue flag beaches, plus other attractions such as the Funland Amusement Park and Hayling Island Railway. With an array of restaurants on the island, there are plenty of eating options on offer, from fine dining to seaside fish and chips. Want to stay longer than a day? There are many accommodation options in and around Hayling island offering campervan pitches and facilities.

Exploring the South Downs National Park

Just a 10 minute drive away from Portsmouth along the M27 you will discover Queen Elizabeth Country Park which is located within the famous South Downs National Park.  The iconic and famously ‘chalky’ South Downs covers more than 600 sq miles of countryside in East and West Sussex and Hampshire. There are literally hundreds of routes you could take either in your campervan, on foot, or by bike – how about setting yourself a challenge to complete The South Downs Way 100 mile trail? As well as walking, cycling and driving to explore the park, there are many visitor attractions on offer, such as Arundel Castle, The Trundle and Butser Ancient Farm. The park is just too vast to explore in less than a day so you might want to find a local campsite where you can rock up at and stay a night or two.

Camping, surfing and relaxing at West Wittering

Another blue flag award beach to add to your visit list is West Wittering. The village of Wittering and its beach are set in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the South Coast of England. The beach is located on the entrance to the beautiful Chichester Harbour, so this is another spot you can enjoy on your Wittering adventure. With your camper safely parked you can either cycle or walk along to Chichester. Low tide is the best time to walk along the sandy beaches, so check out tide times  before you set off.
