Mudeford Ferry

The Mudeford Ferry operates between Mudeford Quay and the Beach at Mudeford Sandbank approximately every 15 minutes during British Summer Time, which is from Easter to late October, weather permitting.

We will also operate at Weekends and School Hoildays in the Winter months provided there is a favourable forecast, the sun is shining and the wind strength is reasonable.

Check our facebook page or telephone 07968 334441 for up to date information.

The Mudeford Ferry is based at Mudeford, Christchurch, Dorset on the south coast of the UK. London 100 miles, 25 miles west of Southampton and 5 miles east of Bournemouth, postcode BH23 4AB.

Mudeford Sandbank and Beach is the relatively unspoilt strip of land adjoining Hengistbury Head. On one side is the sea and on the other Christchurch Harbour. Picturesque beach huts bask in the sun, flanked by unspoilt beach. Choose to sit and watch the yachts in the harbour, the waves gently rolling in from the sea or visit the site of the ancient ironworks on Hengisbury Head.

There is a cafe named appropriately the Beach House and a two hundred year old building called the Black House, which has been recently made into holiday flats.

From Mudeford Sandbank you can travel up the river using the vintage boats operated by Bournemouth Boating Services to Christchurch Quay for Christchurch Town Centre, to Wick for Captains Club Hotel and onwards to Tuckton for Tuckton Tea Gardens.

There is a Land Train that connects the Mudeford Ferry with Southbourne and ultimately Boscombe and Bournemouth. There is a Car Park at the Southbourne end of the Land Train. Some people make a round trip starting at Mudeford Quay and taking the ferry to the Sandbank, walk or use the Land Train to Wick, Wick Ferry to Christchurch and then bus or walk to Mudeford.

Hengistbury Head Visitors centre was opened in 2015 and is well worth a visit. Ask the Skipper for details
