Enjoy a serene boat trip...

From Easter to October, take a tranquil cruise down the Beaulieu River – an unspoilt haven which is rich in history and wildlife.

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 when booked in conjunction with your visit to Buckler's Hard.

Birdlife on the Beaulieu River Cruise


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.
