Weston Shore and Weston Parade
From Woolston Sailing Club, Victoria Road (Woolston) a path runs alongside the water, opening out onto a grassed area and the beach. The path rejoins the road, now Weston Parade, with its iconic shelters. There is a cafe and a pitch & putt at the corner of Weston Lane. An ice cream van is often in the car park at the other end of Weston Parade. A take-away van is also sometimes present. From the Netley end of Marine Parade there is a choice of route to Netley Abbey. The first is by road along Abbey Hill. The second is along the path then across Conkerfield and through the trees. Both of these routes are liable to flooding after heavy or prolonged rain. The third route is along the shore to the Cricket Field and then up to Abbey Hill / Victoria Road (Netley Abbey).  
     
     
     
     
    Other great walks in the Weston area include the Shoreburs Greenway and Westwood.  
Abbey Hill and The Conkerfield
A pleasant walk from the Weston Shore footpath beyond Weston Sailing Club and through the woods to Netley Abbey.  
     
Netley Shore
The beach offers an alternative to the road or footpath. From there you can cross the Cricket Field or walk up Beach Lane to Netley Abbey.  
     
The Cricket Field
A park in the middle of Netley with access to the beach.  
     
Netley Abbey Ruins
Netley Abbey is a ruined medieval monastery which was converted to a mansion in Tudor times and later fell into disrepair.  
For more information and opening times please visit the English Heritage website.  
     
Sopie's Pond
Just outside the Victoria Road entrance to the Royal Victoria Country Park is Sophie's Pond. A popular place to watch the wildlife. Visitors are asked not to feed bread to the birds and to give them seeds, lettuce or peas instead.  
     
Netley Cliff
Just outside the Victoria Road entrance to the Royal Victoria Country Park and across the road from Sophie's Pond there is a short stretch of coastline where you can pause and watch the ships pass by.
