"With over a mile of beach, pine fringed cliffs, historic D-Day remains and wild flower meadows, Lepe Country Park is a great day out with superb views of the Solent and Isle of Wight. There's a full list of events throughout the year that explores all areas of the park from "Pond dipping" and "Marine Wonders" to Cafe quiz nights and the annual "Lepe into Action" - there's lots to entertain the whole family. Please check out our website for more information about what's on and all you can see and do on your visit to Lepe.

Love this place, visit regularly in all weathers and the views are always stunning. Easy to walk a fair way along the beach and watch the boats.

Great walk along the coast, ideal for the dog walkers. New cafe complex, little pricey, but good selection. New number plate photo recognition, just started. All parking meters shut down
