Living in Christchurch
Christchurch is a delight; a harbourside town of character and charm located where the Avon and Stour rivers flow into Christchurch Harbour.
Positioned between Bournemouth and the New Forest, Christchurch is a lively town with mainline station and a good variety of independents and national brands (from Boots to Waitrose). It has become something of a foodie destination: chock-a-block with cafes, pubs, and restaurants, such as The Jetty on Mudeford Quay. It is also the venue for a popular food and wine festival that attracts some high profile chefs.
Other attractions include the priory, castle ruins, nature reserves, nearby beaches and Mudeford Quay with ferry service to Mudeford Spit (with iconic beach huts) and Hengistbury Head. A wide range of activities are available such as cricket, golf and watersports. Another boon for families are the schools – rated at least ‘good’ by Ofsted, while Christchurch Infant School, Mudeford Infant and Junior Schools and Twynham comprehensive are all graded ‘outstanding’.
An attractive range of property includes architect-designed new builds, fine Georgian houses and modern townhouses, some in waterside locations and with views across Christchurch Harbour.
