We had a very brief visit and would like to return to see more - lots of information, displays and video clips.

“Try the riverboat ferry from Tuckton to Hengistbury Head”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Catch the ferry from Tuckton bridge to Hengistbury Head. Going along the river it stops at Wick and Christchurch and takes about 40 minutes. Have coffee or lunch at the Beach House on Mudeford Spit, stroll along the harbourside or the beach side admiring the beach huts before returning the same way. Or you can walk back or go via the Noddy train. A favourite place to visit when I return to my home town, never tire of this place at ant time of the year.

“Honest Review”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Excellent, lovely and free with stunning views to Isle of Wight and the Jurassic coast. Please beware that during periods of lovely weather you may get carried away enjoying what nature has to offer and end up miles away from where you wanted to be with tired legs and a tiring trek to find transport back to civilisation!

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Lovely walk with good views on all sides. At the end we caught the ferry over to the pub for lunch and then back again. Walked back along the beach. Very nice outing

“Hot, beach not maintained, nice trains”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Went for a day trip here by bus, you get the small beach train down through the forest to the beach which is a pleasant 10 minutes and only costs £1. The beach is nice although lots of seaweed/stones and dogs on beach. The beach huts are nice to look at the most expensive in the UK. Nice shop/restaurant there too.
