A star of Dunkirk movie opens to visitors at Buckler’s Hard
Buckler’s Hard visitors will be able to take tours on board HMS Medusa – which took a starring role in the recently released Dunkirk movie – while it is moored at the attraction on Friday September 29th and Saturday September 30th.
HMS Medusa was chosen for filming because of its role to help clear the way to Omaha Beach for D-Day. Its new-found celebrity and recent D-Day commemorations have also led to a trip to France this year and filming for a documentary on the History Channel.
Visitors to Buckler’s Hard will be able to talk to crew on board and learn more about the vessel’s role in history and recent filming, while it is moored at the attraction on the Beaulieu River.
See historic displays in the labourers’ and shipwrights’ cottages and visit the Chapel of St Mary’s which was once at the heart of smuggling in the village. Take a River Cruise with a commentary about the abundant wildlife and features along the Beaulieu River. Amble through the Apple Orchard before relaxing for light refreshments at the Captain’s Cabin Tea Rooms.
