The head is a protected, car free, site of special scientific interest. You reach it by parking at the large park and then either walking round or riding the little "land train". There is a choice of a walk along the harbour shore line, along...More

Beautiful, varied scenery which is clean and well kept. Great to see beach, forest, wetlands, wildlife, beach huts were lovely. The disappointment was the land train - there weren't enough carriages - it was a dull day (can't imagine on a summer day) and a...More

The nature and photographic opportunities are plenty and kids will love crabbing and searching around the shoreline and creeks.

Enjoyable walk. The time of year may have been out of season, but a short walk to the head from the beach and you can enjoy the wonderful views.

Hengistbury Head is a wonderful place to take families as there is something for everyone there. Walks, beaches, train ride, good cafes, wonderful views and a really interesting information centre. A must to visit in good weather. Huge car park and easy access.
