Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre

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.

Maybe 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.
