Whether it’s a long summer’s or crisp winter’s day, the best way to explore the surrounding areas is on foot. The Christchurch Harbour Hotel’s location makes it the perfect base for discovering the beautiful coastline of Dorset with miles of golden beaches, the Jurassic Coast and further afield into the New Forest.
Feeling energetic? There are plenty of outdoor sports and attractions to keep you busy. Why not try cycling or horse riding in the New Forest, or discover your sea legs and get out on the water, with Christchurch Sailing Centre close by.
