This walk passes through the only resort on the Solent Way, Southsea. The Solent Way follows the promenade from Old Portsmouth along Southsea sea front, passing Clarence Pier, Southsea Hoverport, The War Memorial, Blue Reef Aquarium and South Parade Pier. Beyond South Parade Pier the promenade becomes much quieter and as you get towards the end the path turns inland through a residential area, then follows the eastern edge of Langstone Harbour, offering views to Hayling Island across the harbour.

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