Opening times

You can find out about the current service status here.

Location

The train service runs on the scenic route between the Broadway terminus (just from outside the Hiker Cafe) (BH6 4EN) and Mudeford Spit.

Enjoy views of Christchurch Harbour and Christchurch Priory whilst travelling, and discover a wide variety of habitats including heathland, grassland, scrub, woodland, freshwater wetland and coastland.

On this ancient headland you will find places that are windy, sheltered, wet, dry, muddy, sandy, stony, sunny, shady, flat, steep and salty.

These different conditions provide homes, food and water for many species of plants and animals. The headland has national and international wildlife protection.

There is a lot to do at Hengistbury Head.  

Stations

You can only board the train at either the Broadway terminus (by the Hiker Cafe) or at the Mudeford Spit terminus.  

Please tell the driver or guard if you wish to get off the train at the Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre (only possible in the direction of Mudeford - Hengistbury).
