Mudeford Tourist Information
Only two miles from Christchurch, Mudeford is a charming fishing village lying at the entrance to Christchurch Harbour, a mecca for water-sports enthusiasts and fishermen.
The picturesque quay with its lobster pots, old fishermen's' cottages and Haven House Inn has been traditionally linked with smuggling over the centuries.
Nowadays it is not only the centre of the local fishing industry, where fresh fish can be bought from the fish stall, but also a beautiful spot to sit and watch the world go by. Here you can catch the ferry to Mudeford Sandbank, a unique spit of land, which adjoins Hengistbury Head, forming a natural barrier between the harbour and the open sea. It is an ideal spot for a relaxing walk and is easily reached by ferry.
Stanpit Marsh is a site of Special Scientific Interest and remains an amazingly unspoilt area of harbour wetlands, which is exceptionally good for the observation and study of winter visiting birds. It has a great variety of marshland plants and animals, details of which can be found at the entrance of the marsh off Stanpit in Mudeford in the Information Caravan.
