A lovely and easy walk. The riverside walk is shut for conservation purposes, which means that the walk does not provide that many views onto the river. It's still very pleasant and worth it. We did it on a Sunday morning and it was getting busy towards the end.

Although the riverside walk was closed due to erosion, Beaulieu, Buckler’s Hard and the main path in between were absolutely worth our time. It can get busy though, so be patient.
