Milford-on-Sea Town Information




Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Hampshire and New Forest...








A pretty seaside village, Milford-on-Sea is surrounded by magnificent scenery and has a long coastal path with spectacular views. A shingle spit leads to Hurst Castle - now owned by English Heritage - which was built by Henry VIII to help defend the south coast. The village started life as a Saxon settlement, later becoming important for the refining of sea salt. A passenger ferry runs from Hurst Castle to the nearby fishing-cum-yachting hamlet of Keyhaven.
