Christchurch Certificated Locations

Christchurch in Dorset is a hugely popular tourist destination - and it's easy to understand why. Lying adjacent to Bournemouth and the New Forest and boasting seaside, countryside, an array of family activities and nature reserves, there really is something for everyone.

You can relax on one of the six sandy beaches while enjoying views of the Isle of Wight, or soak up some culture at the town's not one but two castles.

The town centre offers the chance to shop at independent boutiques, markets or high street stores and it's possible to while away hours watching boats at the natural harbour.

Try spotting some local wildlife in one of the numerous nature reserves, or take the kids to Splashpark if you feel like getting a soaking.

Christchurch also offers plenty of options when it comes to eating and drinking - and with a host of annual events such as the Food and Wine Festival to choose from, you'll run out of time before you run out of things to put on your itinerary here.
