Towns & Villages
Emsworth, with its narrow streets, Georgian houses and walled gardens, is a picturesque fishing village popular with sailors, artists, naturalists and walkers.
Emsworth is now mainly a yachting town but has Saxon origins and in the Middle Ages was a busy port. Emsworth’s history is connected with oyster fishing and boat building and the town still has traditional shipwrights and chandleries.
Walkers can enjoy the views around the tidal mill ponds to the east and west, on the shoreline and through Brook Meadow while nature lovers can revel in the variety of visiting and native wildlife.
Migrating birds visit the salt marsh on Emsworth’s foreshore every year and several conservation groups are dedicated to protecting the natural environment.
Emsworth also has tempting pubs and restaurants and a wide selection of specialist shops.
Emsworth resident PG Wodehouse used many local place names for characters in his novels and you can find out more about the town’s literary connections at the Emsworth Museum. Nearby attractions include Staunton Country Park, Hayling Island, and The Spring arts centre in Havant.
