Havant in Hampshire has grown considerably since its creation in around 935AD. It now sits neatly between Chichester and Portsmouth and helps to form a conurbation in the south east corner of Hampshire. The modern Meridian shopping centre contains a good selection of cafes, restaurants and shops selling a variety of toys, gifts and other goods. Plenty of independent shops are based around the outside of the centre in an attractive pedestrian area.
Havant shops sell dolls, hobbies, models, games and puzzles. The area around Havant is highly populated and customers do not need to travel far to find all the toys or gifts they need. Carousel Toys in the Leigh Park district has become a destination toy shop for customers seeking a wide range of games, action figures and collectable cards.
