Fareham is a delightful town on the Hampshire coast with strong links to British Maritime history. Arranging car hire in Fareham is ideal for making the most of your time in the area, whether you plan to stay around Fareham itself or head out further to the South Coast or New Forest.

Situated within striking distance of two major cities and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is an area well worth a visit...

Fareham is situated on the Solent, the water way between the English coast and the Isle of Wight, and is therefore ideally located for fantastic views of the shipping lanes into Southampton and Portsmouth as well as across to the island. The town is small and compact and easy to get around. 

The town has historical industries such as brick making; in fact the bricks for the Royal Albert Hall in London came from the town's brick furnaces. Westbury Manor Museum in the town centre tells the story of how the bricks came to be selected from the area and supplied to the capital.

Today, visitors can enjoy Titchfield Abbey. Although much was destroyed in the reign of Henry VIII, you can still visit the site and enjoy the gatehouse building with its medieval stone tiled floors and the remains of the church itself.

Portchester Castle also dates back to medieval times and is located on the outer entrance to Portsmouth's extensive harbour. It has acted as the defensive building for what was once a port, and was also the place where British monarchs launched attacks on France from the safety and security of the castle walls.

Southampton Airport (SOU) is the nearest airport to the town, reached within 30 minutes along major roads. You can arrange to pick up your hire car here or in downtown Fareham itself or in nearby Southampton or Portsmouth. To find the best price on car rental in Fareham, use TravelSupermarket's search tool to the left.
