I love walking my dogs here. The views along with the sunsets and sunrises are beautiful. It is a peaceful place to enjoy a picnic with the kids or just watch the world go by

Accessible cycle ways and paths make this a great place for all to visit. Walk along the river or up the hill for more of a challenge. Beautiful views of the river and the city.

I visited St Catherines Hill early evening in May 2018. My objective was to walk along the Itchen river stretch below before taking the ascent to the very top. It was all very peaceful and I managed to park on the road nearby, although there...More
