Welcome Back

We are pleased to confirm that the Buckler's Hard visitor attraction is once again open to visitors, seven days a week from 10am.

This follows the recent Government guidance advising that attractions and museums can now open to the public, as long as special measures are taken to reduce the potential risk of infection.

The Maritime Museum, Shipwright's Cottage and St Mary's Chapel are now open to attraction visitors together with the Beaulieu River cruise for which tickets are sold onboard, with contactless payment preferable.

The Captain's Cabin Tea Room has also reopened offering a new menu to be enjoyed either on the terrace seating or whilst sat on the grass areas of the attraction for those with an admission ticket. Following recent Government advice, face-coverings must be worn at all times whilst inside, unless seated.

Keeping you safe

The Buckler's Hard team has been working hard to ensure we can keep everyone safe whilst visiting, and have also created a Visitor Safety Promise and a new Frequently Asked Question section on our website to provide you with all of the information you may want to know before you visit.

From Friday 24th July, visitors to the Gift Shops located in the Captain's Cabin Tea Room and in the Maritime Museum entrance will be requested to wear a face-covering in accordance with Government guidance.

We are also pleased to have been awarded the ‘We’re Good To Go’ industry-standard from Visit Britain, which means we are following Government and industry Covid-19 guidelines and have processes in place to ensure social distancing and cleanliness.


Holders of valid attraction tickets and annual passes will receive a four-month extension to their expiry date to reflect our period of closure. Simply bring your printed ticket or annual pass with you when you visit.

We ask everyone else to purchase their admission ticket ahead of visiting so that we can allow for swift entry to the attraction, and in accordance with Government guidance, this will allow us to record contact details of those visiting should they be required for the NHS Track & Trace programme.

Tickets can be purchased online either in advance or on the day of your visit.

Car Park

The charge for using the Buckler's Hard attraction car park is once again included within the cost of entry to visitor attraction which also includes the Maritime Museum, Shipwright's Cottage, St Mary's Chapel and the village grounds.

We thank you for your patience and support whilst we have been closed and look forward to welcoming you back to Buckler's Hard.
