- Coasts

- Rivers 

- Prehistory 

- Pond dipping

- Minibeasts (April - September)

Due to the sensitive nature of the site and to avoid clashing, if you are planning on coming to Hengistbury Head as part of an independent visit please contact the Visitor Centre to inform us of your plans. 

If you have a question or would like to book a session with us, please contact Emily Fergusson, Engagement Coordinator, or call the centre on 01202 451618 and ask for Emily.
