Venture only a short walk from Captain’s Club to discover one of the most popular local attractions. Surrounding part of Christchurch’s harbour, the quay stretches along the northern banks of the River Stour with quaint little tea rooms, art galleries and children’s play areas along the way.
Christchurch’s much-loved annual music festival situated in the heart of all the action in the picturesque surroundings of the quay, ‘Stompin’ on the Quomps’ celebrates the best of jazz. Originally nicknamed the ‘community’s concert’, it has since become one of the largest events of its kind on the South Coast.
Jam-packed with restaurants, cafes and the weekly Farmers Market, Christchurch Food Festival holds a firm spot on the community’s culinary calendar. A week long extravaganza taking place each May, this much-look-forward-to event is a food lover’s dream, showcasing the best of local produce with plenty of samples to tantalise the taste buds on the way round the many stands.
The town is rich in history from its Grade ll-listed Place Mill dating from back to 1100 AD to the Victorian bandstand, Red House Museum and Christchurch Priory Church, which has been welcoming worshippers for over 900 years. Surrounded by a magnificent collection of castles, admire the ancient ruins of Christchurch Castle, as well as visiting Bailey Castle and Highclere Castle - the famous set of the popular TV show, Downton Abbey.
Bring the whole family along for stay at Captain's Club with a wide selection of fun-fuelled attractions right here on our doorstep - there’s no time for getting bored here. The kids (and adults) will love a visit to Adventure Wonderland Theme Park with lots of fun rides to feed their excitement, or pop along and see all of your favourite characters at Peppa Pig World.
Given our unique waterside location, a stay at Captain’s Club wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Bournemouth Oceanarium, discovering the wildlife right here on our coastline along the way. Take an amble and be at one with nature in the New Forest or come in the summer and visit The New Forest County Show - a great day out, full of farm animals, traditional rural crafts and entertainment.
The bright lights of Bournemouth offers great shopping and live entertainment at both the BIC and Pavilion theatres. Amble along the pier, wander around the winter gardens and visit the all the picturesque seaside attractions – you can even get a bird's eye view of the whole area with a trip up in the Bournemouth balloon. The annual Bournemouth Air Show is the biggest in the UK, an impressive spectacle of aerial displays best viewed from the clifftops and beaches.
