From Easter to October, take a tranquil cruise down the Beaulieu River – an unspoilt haven which is rich in history and wildlife.
The River Cruise is open. We are limiting visitor numbers, so tickets can only be purchased in person as you board the boat. Please consider following Government advice and wearing a mask aboard the River Cruise.
A place of serenity and beauty… step aboard for a peaceful 30 minute boat trip along one of the few privately owned rivers in the world.
The river cruise is a great optional extra to enjoy during your visit to Buckler's Hard.
DISCOVER HISTORY & WILDLIFE
Originally granted to the monks of Beaulieu Abbey by King John in 1204, the rights and responsibilities of caring for the Beaulieu River later passed to the Montagu family. Their careful ownership has created a river which is largely unspoilt and a haven for wildlife.
An engaging commentary will reveal the fascinating history of this unique river as well as the creatures that inhabits its riverbanks.
River cruises will operate daily from 17 May - 31 October 2021. The river cruise sails from the jetty at the bottom of the high street at the following times:
11.00, 11.45, 12.45, 13.30, 14.15, 15.00, 15.45, 16.30
All sailings are subject to conditions of carriage.
Passenger numbers will be limited on each cruise. Tickets can therefore only be purchased in person as you board the boat.
River Cruise tickets can only be purchased on the day as boarding the vessel.
A really, really lovely place to visit, very interesting museum, beautiful little village & a very interesting boat ride.
