A vintage ferry service to Mudeford beach, then a walk up to Hengistbury head - on beautiful sand beach with pretty beach houses. Head has magnificent views -, then back on the ferry to Christchurch to explore and have lunch. Then back to Tuckton.

I visited Christchurch during the week. Still quintessentially a small clean English town with restaurants, an old Priory Church with leads into a lovely park with a river. There were a variety of motor-crafts for 'boating' and other trips. The park was furnished with swings,...More
