Walk description:

Continual improvements are being made to ensure that visitors with disabilities, especially wheelchair users, can enjoy a visit to the reserve. However, wheelchair users should be accompanied.

There are three parking spaces for badge holders immediately behind Titchfield Haven Visitor Centre. Access is via Cliff Road. There is a short path and ramp into the Visitor Centre where admission tickets are bought.

There are toilets for those with disabilities in the Centre, access to the Tea Room is either by path around the outside of the building or through the Centre itself and the shop, children's activities and exhibition areas are all on the ground floor.

Access to the Meadow and Suffern and Knights Bank hides is via paths and boardwalks which may get muddy in a few places after heavy rain. Access to the Meon Shore and Pumfrett hides is via a level path. Doors to the hides push sideways on runners and may sometimes stick! The path to the Spurgin Hide is currently rather rutted so do take care. Improvements are planned over the next twelve months. There are lower level windows in the hides, except for the Spurgin Hide.

You need to check on opening times at this web site - http://www3.hants.gov.uk/hampshire-countryside/titchfield.htm
There are 2 "there and backs" one each side of the river. Don't forget your binoculars, if you do you can hire them from the visitor centre. Worth taking a camera some days too. In the summer there is often an ice cream van up from the beach.
