Emsworth is situated right in the middle of the South Coast of England. Those of us who live here think we live in a corner of God’s paradise! The history of Emsworth is totally linked to the sea, and the workings of the sea: fishing, ship-building, rope and sail-making and now the leisure sailing industry. Oysters made the town famous at the turn of the 19th century, but not necessarily in a happy way. Find out about the history of this interesting little town at the Museum, either with a private visit or join the general public. Wildlife and conservation are important in this area, with Emsworth being the main town on Chichester Harbour. Langstone Harbour is nearby with its important bird breeding sites. Both harbours are Sites of Special Scientific Interest and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Emsworth is within walking distance of the Brookfield Hotel, either along the road or the coastal path. A short car journey away are so many important historic and cultural landmarks that no visit to The Brookfield Hotel can be anything but inspiring.
