Summary: The Solent Way is a 60 mile long-distance footpath that with the exception of a few inland diversions, follows the coast of the Solent, the sea strait that separates mainland England from the Isle of Wight. The route crosses coastal marshes to Lymington before going inland and past the heaths, woods and villages of the New Forest, Bucklers Hard and Beaulieu to reach Hythe on the Test Estuary. The ferry is taken to Southampton from where it follows the Solent shoreline, crossing the River Hamble to reach Portsmouth via the Gosport ferry. It continues along the historic waterfront of Portsmouth and Southsea and passes the coastal marshes and quays around Langstone Harbour.
