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

Covid-19 update

Many events and activities due to run at Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre and Nature Reserve have been postponed until further notice.

Please join us on social media for all our other news and visitor guidance:

Any events that are going ahead are listed below: 

Virtual Archaeology Walk - Monday 30 November

Join us for a virtual archaeology walk around the ancient sites at Hengistbury Head. At each of the main archaeological sites visited, there will be a small talk about the excavations and ancient people who lived and died on the headland all this time ago. The virtual walk is part of the Performing the Past project which aims to engage local people in local archaeology, focused around the well-used but little known site of Hengistbury Head. 

The Virtual Archaeology Walk will be streamed live through Bournemouth Parks Foundation's Facebook page. 

Why not get the most from your visit to Hengistbury Head and join in with one of our events? There really is something for everyone, from birdwatching for beginners, to creative writing for adults, pond-dipping and arty crafty events for children.

Some events require booking ahead, and others are open events that you can just come along to.

Temporary Exhibitions

We have a programme of temporary exhibitions too, all related to the topics we love at Hengistbury - geography, archaeology, local history, art and much more.

Find out what's on display in our Upstairs Gallery inside the Visitor Centre.
