You then head inland through the New Forest towards Hythe passing the excellent Beaulieu Motor Museum, the pretty Dibden Inclosure and the Beaulieu River as you go. At Hythe you cross Southampton water on the Hythe Ferry taking you to Southampton where you follow the coast to Gosport. On this section you will pass the delightful Titchfield Haven nature reserve near Fareham. Here you will find 369 acresof River, fen, pools, reedbed and meadow with a variety of wildlife to look out for.
