Waterlooville in the Havant area is only a 15 minute drive north of Portsmouth and sits just off the A3M, yet the town is surrounded by pleasant open countryside and many pretty country villages including Clanfield, Cowplain and Hambledon. The town takes its name from the Battle of Waterloo. The ‘ville’ was added later to give it a distinct identity from other locations of the same name. Country pubs serving fine food and ales are a real feature in the area. Weary soldiers returning from the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 stopped off for respite at Waterlooville’s first pub called ‘The Heroes of Waterloo’. The inn survives today and is famed for its award-winning ales and live music.

The town centre has a good range of shops and market day is every Friday around the precinct. Accommodation includes a collection of friendly, independent B&B guest houses in the centre, quality independent and chain hotels ideally close to the A3 and in the surrounding countryside and villages a wide choice of country inns with rooms and holiday cottages. Whether you are searching for a convenient business base or motorway stopover near Portsmouth with good transport links or you’re looking for an ideal touring base for exploring Hayling Island to the south and the Downs to the North, Waterlooville accommodation is perfectly suited. The town has excellent bus links to surrounding villages, Portsmouth, Southsea, Fareham, Emsworth and to Petersfield, the location for the nearest mainline railway station.
