Why Move to Fareham?
The market town of Fareham in Hampshire sits nicely between the large cities of Portsmouth and Southampton. Originally known as Ferneham, it was listed in the Domesday Book as having 90 households. The town and surrounding area were once an important location for the manufacturer of bricks, most notably used to build the Royal Albert Hall.
Whilst the south facing location enabled farmers to grow strawberries and other seasonal fruits which were transported around the region including London. Following the 1960’s South Hampshire Plan, Fareham’s population swelled. Today it has developed into a major market town benefitting from an impressive shopping complex and an idyllic waterside location.
The area continues to undergo development. Thousands of new homes, road improvements and changes to its layout, updated shopping precinct and a VUE cinema along with a large Tesco store have made it a popular relocation choice. Fareham offers easy access to the south coast, so it is no surprise that many people in Fareham enjoy water sports.
There is also the opportunity to venture into the South Downs or New Forest National Parks, both of which are an easy drive away. As far as accessibility goes, Fareham beats many towns in the South. Sitting just on the outskirts of town is the main M27 which links to the M3 giving access to all parts of the south of England by road. The historic city of Portsmouth is just 15 minutes by car and the larger city of Southampton is about 20-25 mins by car.
The town has its own large train station from which you can reach London, in just over an hour and a half direct into Waterloo station as well as lots of other regions up and down the country. The beautiful Isle of Wight is just a short ferry, hovercraft or hydrofoil ride from Fareham, a popular seaside destination for those holidaying in the UK.
Plenty of good schools surround the town and buyers will find a varied selection of reasonably priced homes from first time buyer properties to large modern family sized homes and period properties. Fareham really does cover all bases for those looking to relocate.
Fareham Schools & Education
Fareham falls under Hampshire County Council and is responsible for all schools and colleges across the region.
A number of schools are available to young people in Fareham, including Cams Hill School, Whiteley Primary School, and Heathfield Community School all of which received an “outstanding” rating from their most recent Ofsted inspections.
For older children, there are two highly regarded colleges to choose from; Henry Cort Community College rated as “good” by Ofsted and Fareham College rated as “outstanding”.
Boundary Oak, an independent boarding school close to the centre of Fareham is a popular choice when it comes to private education. The school has a rich history; the Grade II listed main building, Roche Court, was built by Peter de Roches, the Bishop of Winchester, in the 13th Century and hosted King John of England and his son Henry II.
Things to do in Fareham
When you are considering a move somewhere new, everyone has a mental check list. Obviously if you have children, schools are at the top of the list, as will be distance from the workplace. However, its always good to know what is available recreationally. Taking time to de-stress at the weekend is incredibly important.
Fareham and the surrounding region pose a multitude of activities for all ages, interests, and budgets. The additional bonus is that the town is sandwiched between the two incredible cities of Portsmouth and Southampton. Plus, the beautiful south coast is on Fareham’s doorstep, a veritable playground for all things water based.
