There is so much going on at Hengistbury Head - what will you discover?

Current Events

Take a look at our 'Performing the Past' events programme, where you can take part in events and activities showing Hengistbury Head as a scene of settlement and ceremony for more than twelve thousand years. 

Guided Walks

We have a gentle guided walk once a month on Hengistbury Head or Wick Fields. Highlights include stopping to look at birds, trees, flowers, insects and more on our walks, and we even have the occasional nature poem along the way. The walks start at the Visitor Centre, and booking is essential - call 01202 122844. Here are some forthcoming dates:

  • Tuesday 8 February, 10am to 12pm  -  Winter Walk
  • Thursday 17 March, 10am to 12pm  -  Signs of Spring
  • Thursday 7 April, 9.30am to 12pm  -  Spring Nature and Poetry

Covid-19 update

Our events and activities at Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre and Nature Reserve are running in line with the latest government guidance.
