Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre


Picturesque Hengistbury Head is one of the most important Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) in England and boasts spectacular views of coastline, nature reserve and riverbank.

Open daily from 10am – 4pm, the Visitor Centre houses interactive displays, art and crafts exhibitions and runs a jam-packed programme of family-friendly activities.

Explore the wildlife garden, or watch from inside on the live webcam screens spying on birds nesting or feeding.

Delve into family friendly exhibitions and learn about internationally important archaeology, geology, local sealife and wildlife.

Choose from an excellent variety of unique, responsibly-sourced produce and gifts in our shop – including wildlife-friendly plants from the local Kings Park Nursery.

Why not spend the day and combine a visit to the centre with a trip to the beach at Mudeford Spit?
Parking is in the large, public car park.
