Emsworth Arts Trail

A Celebration of Art on the Shores of Chichester Harbour

Each spring, the picturesque harbour village of Emsworth bursts into colourful life as local artists take part in the Emsworth Arts Trail. The trail is a hub of independent creativity, with a close-knit artistic community sharing their passion with visitors from far and wide.

This year 90 artists will be taking part, working in a huge range of media – paint, print, textiles, sculpture, wood, jewellery, ceramics, photography and more. Some artists gather together in group venues to exhibit, whilst others open their studios, allowing visitors a unique insight into the way they work.

Visitors can walk, cycle or scoot around the trail, guided by the maps in the trail guide.

Visit the website and pick up a trail guide in shops throughout Emsworth from the beginning of April.
