Getting There

A figure of eight walk from the exclusive Chichester Marina in West Sussex. The walk leaves the marina via a small woodland copse before following the coastal path north to reach Dell Quay and then returning south alongside crop fields. Throughout you’ll be able to enjoy the salty air from the harbour and the views across the coastline and inland across farmland. The walk is almost entirely flat, there are no stiles and just one kissing gate. There is one small section of road walking and you’ll need to cross the marina lock via the footbridge over the lock gates. The walk is evenly split with about half on tarmac or stone lanes and half on field edge paths which can be muddy after wet weather.

The walk starts from the free visitor car park in Chichester Marina (note camper vans and caravans are not allowed in the car park). The marina is signed off the A286 Chichester to Witterings road. Once on the access lane, the visitor car park is the first car park on the right. Approximate post code PO20 7EJ.

Too many cyclists not slowing down and keeping their COVID distance even at 10am on a Sunday

We walked along the waters edge there and back. Beautiful views. Nice stop at The Boathouse Cafe. Wasn’t worth walking around the marina.

This would be a lovely trail in drier weather but as it is it is very boggy and flooded. The loop by the marina is closed off so you can't get round. Some lovely little areas to enjoy the water and off lead running if you go with dogs as we did.
