The Maritime Museum & Buckler’s Hard Story, preserved in the heart of time, is set in the New Forest with a fascinating insight into the history of this 18th century shipbuilding village. It focuses on the vessels built for Nelson’s Navy and we have included a ‘Heart of England’ guided tour, for you to get the most out of your day.

See the replica timber-framed shipwrights’ workshop which has been built using traditional methods. Buckler’s Hard has been voted by Visit England as one of the ‘101 Things To Do.’ In the New Forest it’s within easy reach of the Island.

Included is a River Cruise which wends its way along with a commentary revealing the history of Beaulieu River and the abundant wildlife which inhabits its riverbanks.
