Christchurch

Christchurch's unique location on the coming together of the rivers Stour and Avon and the shores of its own large natural harbour makes Christchurch a breathtaking location to visit. With the inspiring World Heritage Jurassic Coast and the stunning New Forest National Park nearby it's a great location to get out and explore. Christchurch also neighbours Bournemouth, which is well known for great nightlife, entertainment and shopping. So Christchurch serves as a great base to discover Dorset!

Christchurch offers a fascinating mix of History and Heritage, wonderful coastline and countryside views and a variety of attractions that will make your stay a memorable one. Christchurch also has a great selection of restaurants using the very best local produce most of which comes straight from the local fishing boats.
