Lepe Country Park – For the best views of the Solent
Lepe Country Park, with a mile of beach, pine fringed cliffs and historic D-Day remains, has stunning views across the Solent from Hurst Castle to Portsmouth's Spinnaker Tower.
Lepe is a great day out for people of all ages with the opportunity for children to search for seashore crabs and adults to take a relaxing stroll around the wildlife area through woodlands and meadows with great views over the dark water estuary, all set within the stunning New Forest National Park.
|Improvements to Lepe Country Park are now underway|
A new visitor centre with a café is being built, with bigger indoor seating areas offering panoramic views of the Solent. There will also be landscape changes, improved car parking, new play areas, signage and interpretation ensuring there’s plenty to enjoy on a visit to Lepe. It is hoped the building works will be completed by Summer 2018. You can keep up to date with what’s happening by reading our blog.
From Monday 6 March, our play area will be closed for 3-4 weeks whilst we remove and replace some of our play area equipment. We’re really sorry for any inconvenience to you on your visits to Lepe but look forward to sharing the new pieces with you very soon. For ideas and information on what else is on offer in the park please check out our Facebook page.
Lepe Loop Circular walk
Please be aware of the alternative high tide route following the lane. Some sections of the walk are very muddy and easily flood/become boggy, wellingtons recommended.
