This is within walking distance from our daughter's house and is a beautiful place to walk. There is a view across to the Isle of Wight and a coastal path

Took a drive here for the first time and was amazed at how busy it was. We parked up and walked for miles. The scenery was enchanting. Great to see families out and about and people walking their dogs. It was a breezy but lovely sunny day. We passed the Visitors Centre, unfortunately we didn't go in. Next time. Loved... More

A great place to go for a walk. Probably any reasonably fit person can ascend and there you are met by fantastic views across to the Isle of Wight, and to Studland and then, inland to Mudeford.

Love hengistbury head! It is a natural reserve but with a difference. As you have the beautiful beaches of Bournemouth and Christchurch harbour that wraps around the reserve. Lovely places to eat to get you on your way to lovely walks. There are boat and train rides to.
