Blessed with pristine blue flag beaches, amazing seafood, its own brewery, a beautiful harbour and rich (and at times ‘colourful’ history), Christchurch seems to fly wonderfully under the radar. While nosier neighbours Bournemouth and Poole attract the crowds, Christchurch has a lovely, laid back village feel.
Dating back to the Bronze Age, Christchurch has seen smugglers, pirates, US airmen (WWII) and played a vital part in the D-Day landings as it was home to the Military Experimental Engineering Establishment that designed and built the Bailey Landing Bridges that transported troops and vital equipment ashore.
Today the town has great eco-credentials, good independent shopping and plenty of local amenities.
There’s a theatre and cinema, live music venues and an extensive list of events and festivals throughout the year. If you like taking part, joining in or want to find a new hobby, there are a wide number of groups and societies to suit every interest.
Dog walkers, runners or cyclists are spoilt for choice with so much pristine scenery to explore both along the coast and inland. There are two castles if you’re feeling leisurely or if it’s time to get active Two Rivers Leisure Centre has sports pitches, two swimming pools, a gym, classes and even a healthy café. Golfers are also well catered for with a number of local courses.
Just south of Bournemouth International Airport, Christchurch isn’t disturbed by major roads. However, if you are travelling further afield the A31 drifts through the New Forest before connecting with the M27 motorway for routes to Brighton and the M3 to London. Direct trains to the capital take 1 hour and 49 minutes.
