How to get to the beach huts in Mudeford?

Mudeford is located to the west of the south English coast. It is a harbour side and beach side town, based on a former fishing village in the east of Christchurch, Dorset, just 3 miles away. Historically, it used to be in the county of Hampshire. It is surrounded by two bodies of water – Christchurch Harbour and Avon Beach. Bournemouth is 7 miles west of Mudeford.

There are plenty of public transport options, with trains going to nearby Christchurch and buses covering the remaining route to the beachfront and Mudeford Quay.

The Beach Huts are accessible from the west by foot, bike or land train from Hengistbury Head car park, if travelling by car. From the east, a passenger ferry runs between Mudeford Quay and Christchurch Quay, where the beach huts can be accessed.
