The Waterside

The Waterside is the picturesque stretch of coastline capturing Eling and Marchwood down to Calshot on the western side of Southampton Water. It takes in the large residential town of Totton, the pretty village of Eling with its Tide Mill which is worth a visit and the small and peaceful compact village of Hythe with its lively marina and sophisticated restaurants. At the point there is Calshot activity centre offering diverse sporting facilities, the historic castle and a great pebble beach to see the Solent and the cruise liners.

The principal town of Totton, once ‘the largest village in England’, offers comprehensive shopping facilities and transport links as well as the picturesque Testwood Lakes and its scenic walking, fishing and bird watching opportunities.
