Trains to Emsworth are from London Victoria on the line to Southampton Central. When you arrive at Emsworth, walk down North Street, then an underpass to take you to the town Square. Continue straight on and turn left down Queen Street. After the Slipper Mill...More

Heard about this walk and after advice parked in the Emsworth Marina for free. Walk to the seafront and then you are off. Stunning views and some areas are full of nettles and bramblea so gets tough on the legs if you dont have trousers...More

Lovely drive right down to the end of the Island road until you get to the restricted Barracks area. We had a good wander around the boat areas including Emsworth Marina and the more restricted Thorney Marina. There is good parking and a nice restaurant...More
