Enjoy a river walk

Hamble river

Take a tranquil stroll along the banks of the River Hamble and enjoy some spectacular views from its banks.

Spot the wreck of the Grace Dieu, one of the largest naval vessels of medieval times, which burnt and sank just south of the jetty when it was struck by lightening in 1439 – a large X marks the spot in the river where she rests. You may have seen the 2005 Time Team programme about her excavation. Read more about the Grace Dieu.
