Pagham Harbour and Sidlesham Quay walk

A 2-mile easy access circular walk exploring the Pagham Harbour local nature reserve, just south of Chichester. If you are looking for refreshments, the RSPB visitor centre (at the start of the walk) sells hot drinks and there is a high-end restaurant (specialising in local seafood) in Sidlesham Quay at the halfway point. Click ‘View Website’ for more information.

Access notes

  • The walk is entirely flat and follows compacted stone or stone and grass paths for the whole length.
  • The paths are well-maintained but in between verge cuttings, they can become quite narrow in part due to encroaching tall grasses.
  • There are no stiles or steps on the route, but you will need to negotiate one single gate. With all this in mind, the route would be suitable for pushchairs.
  • Dogs are welcome in the reserve but please keep them on leads.
