Visitor Information


**Covid-19 Update**

The Visitor Centre is now partially open once more. We have implemented measures to keep you all safe, so please follow the on-site guidelines. The exhibition space remains closed, but do come in to enjoy the wildlife garden and perhaps treat yourself to some local gifts, produce, drinks and snacks., please visit the BCP Council Website.

You will also find the very latest guidance regarding visiting open spaces on the government's website. Please join us on social media for all our other news and  visitor guidance:

Hengistbury Head is owned and operated by BCP Council.



Hengistbury Head is a great place to bring the whole family. Take the land train for gentle and easy access to Mudeford Sand spit, then enjoy the view with a cup of tea and a slice of cake, or something more substantial in one of the cafes.

If adventure is more your thing, you could take a course with the Outdoor Education Centre or enjoy the spectacular views, earned with a little effort, from the top of Warren Hill.

Whatever your plans for the day, the friendly staff and volunteers at the Visitor Centre will help you make the most of your visit..
