Our great expectations of ‘Dickens Docks’ Buckler’s Hard – pip pip hooray for historic hampshire

June 15, 2023

Glad that we lived up to the Great Expectations of reviewer Caroline Iggulden to deliver this amazing page of coverage in The Sun.

We were happy to be described as a “Dickensian” destination after providing a backdrop for the recent BBC adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations. Though we offer a much warmer welcome than Olivia Colman’s portrayal of Miss Havisham!
See what Caroline says, then follow in her footsteps and explore our “picture-perfect” setting for free, discover seafaring stories in the museum or even stay in the former grand home of the Master Builder’s House. You can read Caroline’s article here. While the sun is shining, it’s also the perfect time for a cruise along the Beaulieu River to cool down.
With tranquil surroundings and fascinating history, we will meet our visitors’ expectations for a great day out or summer getaway on the New Forest coast.
