Hayling Island Tips

Hayling Island is a small Island that’s linked to the Mainland by a Bridge in the county of Hampshire. This beautiful Island is home to 16,900 people who enjoy the miles of coastline edging the Solent. The traditional Seaside feel is a perfect back drop for Sailing, Swimming, Kite Surfing and Wind Surfing. Boasting two churches St Peter’s built in 1140 and St Mary’s which dates back to the 13th Century. A visit to the Life Boat Station and Museum situated on Sandy Point explains the bravery and history, whilst the views across to the entrance of Chichester harbour can be enjoyed and perhaps captured…….. Or if you fancy a round or two why not Tee off at Hayling Golf Club, established in 1865, the 18 holes will test any golfer, set in a stunning location looking out across the Solent towards the Isle Of White, complete with Club House and of course the 19th Hole….or perhaps the intriguing treasures on display at the Royal Marines Museum wont fail to impress, with their displays of Landing Craft, Uniforms, Silver and Manuscripts dating back centuries. Or be transported back in time with a visit to Southsea Castle built on the orders of Henry V111, now home to a fascinating Museum and to the fabulous ‘Over Lord Tapestry’ which commemorates D Day.
