This walk along the Solent Way begins from the Northern Edge of Portsea Island at Hilsea, returning to Langstone Harbour and crossing the bridge back onto the main land and on to Farlington Marshes. The path rounds the unspoilt marshes then continues on the banks of Langstone Harbour to skirt the edge of Havant before coming to the beautiful village of Langstone, by the bridge to Hayling Island, and on around the banks of Chichester Harbour to finish at the town of Emsworth on the Sussex border, the end of the Solent Way.

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