Thorney Island


A walk along the shoreline of Chichester Harbour around the perimeter of Thorney Island with splendid views over the harbour.

The starting point in Emsworth is at the village square. Alternatively you may wish to drive and park in the small free parking area in the village of Prinsted, signposted off the A286 east of Emsworth, and omit the extra mile to join the route to and from Emsworth.

Tide times – must be consulted as the route may be flooded in one or two places at very high spring tides. Phone the Harbour Office (01243 51 2301) for information or see the Conservancy website. Special note – because a large part of the walk is on Ministry of Defence land you cannot take any short cut across Thorney Island. You must keep to the shoreline path.
