After the peace and tranquillity of the New Forest this Solent Way walk returns to the coast at Southampton. From the town quay (for the ferry from Hythe) the walk goes round the east of Southampton and across the Itchen Bridge. Descending down from the bridge the path soon re-joins the coast which it then follows all the way to Hamble-le-Rice, passing through the Royal Victoria Country Park on the way.

This is one trail in the Solent Way collection of trails. Together they describe the full length of this long distance footpath.
