    Highcliffe – 5 Quirky Facts

    1. Slop Pond
      Highcliffe as it is today was mostly created in the Victorian era with the first of the new houses built high on the cliff tops (as the name suggests), with views over the bay to the Isle of Wight. However, the original settlement dates back over several hundred years and was once a small hamlet that went by the not so attractive name “Slop Pond”. It later became “Newtown” before being rebranded once again as “Highcliffe”.
    2. Smuggler’s Bay
      In its earliest incarnation, Slop Pond wasn’t the most celebrated des res. The local inhabitants were mostly farm hands and fisherman who supplemented their meagre incomes with a spot of poaching and smuggling. The natural bay created the perfect location for bringing goods ashore, with a low beach for landing boats and high cliffs for keeping look out.
    3. Selfridges
      Highcliffe’s most famous home, Highcliffe Castle was once the home of Harry Selfridge. The American entrepreneur who founded Selfridges in 1909 lived at the castle with his family for 6 years from 1916.
    4. Highcliffe Castle
      The castle is open to the public and hosts and variety of events throughout the year as well as hosting weddings and events. It also has a fascinating history. The gothic revival building took four years to build and was completed in 1835 by Lord Stuart Rothesay, who was Britain’s Ambassador in Paris after the fall of Napoleon, and was constructed using vast quantities of carved medieval stonework taken from a French Benedictine monastery. One of the most notable residents was Kaiser Wilhelm II, the last Emperor of Germany and King of Prussia.
    5. Witchcraft
      Another famous Highcliffe resident was Gerald Gardener, seen by many as the father of modern paganism and witchcraft, he created High Priestesses across the UK and his teachings spread as far as Australia and America. Gardener was well travelled, having worked as a civil servant in Ceylon, Madera and Malaya. He settled back in England and lived in Highcliffe from 1938-45 and joined a coven in the town, the Rosicrucian Order Crotona Fellowship, that largely hid its activities claiming to be a theatre group. The group believed that one of the lamps in their ashram was actually the Holy Grail, they also put out a letter in 1939 claiming that the much talked about potential of Britain going to war with Germany wouldn’t happen. The following day Britain declared war on Germany.

    Highcliffe has undergone name changes, been home to smugglers and poachers, a rumoured location of the Holy Grail, housed emperors and millionaires and also the father of modern witchcraft and paganism. So, if you thought Highcliffe was a sleepy little seaside town where nothing much happened, you may need to think again.


    Highcliffe holds a Food & Arts Festival held every June if you’re feeling arty (or hungry). Other local events and groups you might want to get involved in if you’re moving to Highcliffe include a beach clean group, a sailing club, bowling club, jazz band and monthly art group. There is a golf club or if you prefer your walks without hitting a golf ball you can enjoy the Chewton Bunny Nature Reserve.


    There aren’t any major roads heading through the town itself, but Highcliffe is just a short drive from the A31 and M27 which offers access to the M3 and London. You’ll find a small train station at Hinton Admiral with routes to Bournemouth for trains to London.  Is also home to an international airport.
