    6 Quirky Facts About Christchurch

    1. Beach Hut Bonanza
      Beach huts along Mudeford and Avon Beach are highly prized and fetch incredible prices. In July 2020 one beach hut exchanged hands for a cool £300,000!!!
    2. Smugglers Paradise
      Christchurch was loved by smugglers thanks to the complex coastline and bays. Things came to a head in 1784 when local bootleggers and customs officials faced off culminating in the Battle of Mudeford.
    3. Ducking Stool Lane
      Yes, as if having a ducking stool to punish women found guilty of misdemeanours, anti-social behaviour or any other crime they were accused of wasn’t bad enough, they even named a street after it, Ducking Stool Lane (insert your own mother-in-law jokes here).
    4. Dorset Naga
      If you like the spice of life then you should try the local Dorset Naga Chilies. Scoring 923,000 units on the Scoville Scale, you need a hazmat suit just to taste one (ok, we made that last bit up but you do have to wear protective gloves to handle them!).
    5. Sunday Drivers
      Dorset is one of only 5 counties in England not to have a motorway.
    6. Bailey Bridges
      During WWII Christchurch was home to the Military Experimental Engineering Establishment, these covert boffins invented a number of revolutionary ideas that helped turn the tide of the war in Europe including the Bailey Landing bridges used during the D-Day landings.

    About Christchurch

    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.
