TO GET TO HENGISTBURY HEAD
Head is located at the eastern end of Bournemouth in Dorset
and forms the southern peninsula of Christchurch Harbour,
which can be clearly seen in this aerial view of the Head.
BICYCLE OR ON FOOT
Bournemouth if you are coming from Bournemouth,
Boscombe or the Southbourne direction by bike or on foot,
then the easiest way is to cycle or walk in an easterly
direction on the beach promenade, which is both safe and
very enjoyable.There are byelaws that restrict the speed
of bikes to no more than 10mph, and in July and August bicycles
may not be ridden on the promenade between 1000 and 1800.
On those occasions you would need to cyde on Southbourne
Overcliff Drive. Once you get to the end of the promenade,
join the Southbourne Coast Road and you will see the Head
in front of you.
Christchurch - cycle down Stour Road and over Tuckton
Bridge. At the Tuckton Roundabout, go straight across into
Belle Vue Road. Broadway is the next left and the Head is
at the end of Broadway. You can wallk the Stour Valley Way
from Tuckton Bridge along the river bank and through the
fields to the Head.
