Hengistbury Head


We say

Go for a walk out on Hengistbury Head, once a flourishing Iron Age settlement and busy port, but now a peaceful nature reserve. Walk up over the headland for stunning views across Christchurch harbour, over to the Purbecks in the west and the Isle of Wight in the east. Other less-taxing routes follow the inlets of the harbour itself or beneath the cliffs along the beach. Alternatively, take the land train that tootles round the harbour and drops you off by the ferry jetty.
