Hengistbury Head offers freedom of access to most locations on the Nature Reserve

Disabled-access-wheelchair-use499x394

In the last 10 years we have provided comfortable 'to walk on' footpaths across the whole site linking Mudeford Spit to Wick Village. Inevitably the journey to the top of the headland is the most difficult, however the route is possible for wheel chair users with helpers accessing it from the woodland.  Please ask for advice and directions from one of the Rangers.

The exhibition at the visitor centre has been commended for its ease of access to all.  We hope you will pleasantly surprised at the layout, our lift to the mezzanine floor and modern facilities and toilets.


Land-Train-Cropped-600x338

The Land Train is designed to take visitors of all abilities and has specially designed carriages with ramps for wheel chair use.  Please ask to be dropped off at the Visitor Centre.   The operator also runs a Landrover service for access beyond the train terminus. There is extensive parking in the adjacent car park and on street disabled bays opposite to the Hiker Cafe. Please ask the land train staff for assistance either beforehand (Telephone 01202 425517) or on arrival.

Please note there is no general vehicle access for the public onto the Nature Reserve.
