Emsworth, located in the far east of Hampshire, is a picturesque old fishing village nestling on the north end of Chichester harbour, with narrow streets, Georgian houses, walled gardens and a mill pond.
The village boasts a wide choice of pubs, restaurants, cafés and independent food retailers.
In the Middle Ages Emsworth was a busy port, importing wine for the noble classes. Later the village used tidal power to grind flour and also became known for its oyster beds, boat building, rope making and brewing.
Pleasure boating is now one of Emsworth's main attractions, along with its art galleries and lovely coastal walks, offering views over Chichester Harbour.
The Emsworth Museum in North Street tells the fascinating history of the village, from its most famous resident, P.G. Wodehouse, who incorporated several local names into his books, to the films and oral history recordings made by other local residents.
