About

Following the latest government guidance issued on 23rd May, we have decided to open up the Buckler’s Hard village, including the car park and lavatory facility, to provide our local community with an alternative place to visit, enjoy a picnic or walk alongside the Beaulieu River.

At this time, the Maritime Museum, shipwright cottages, Captain's Cabin tea room and river cruise remain closed.

Starting on Thursday 28th May, the facilities will be open each week from Wednesday to Sunday at 10.30am, with the last entry to the car park at 4.30pm. The car park gates will be shut at 5pm.

We have implemented Covid-19 Secure practices to ensure the village is kept clean and safe for our visitors, residents and staff. 

If you're planning on taking a trip down to Buckler's Hard this weekend, why not visit our new pop up cafe where you can treat yourself to a selection of speciality coffees, teas, soft drinks and snacks.
