Stunning scenery of Buckler’s Hard in TV’s semi-finals of Sky Arts’ Landscape Artist of the Year
Crowds of onlookers visited the picturesque village on the banks of the Beaulieu River in July to watch filming of the show in the summer sunshine – and may be able to catch a glimpse of themselves in the final edit.
Sky Arts Director Phil Edgar-Jones said: “It’s always a joy to watch our beautiful country captured, but the brilliant artists who take part in Landscape Artist of the Year – and watching them all create their work – has to be one of the most relaxing, life affirming and all-round lovely TV experiences you can have. It’s a dose of mental medicine and all for free on Sky Arts.”
Visitors, who can enter Buckler’s Hard village for free, can walk in the artists’ footsteps and enjoy the views for themselves. Free access includes entry to the original Shipwright’s Cottage and charming St Mary’s Chapel, with a smugglers’ cellar under the altar, as well as the HMS Agamemnon – Navigating the Legend exhibition about nations working together to preserve the world’s only surviving wreck of a ship built at Buckler’s Hard.
Drop anchor for refreshments at The Captain’s Table, where you can tuck into a tasty lunch or indulgent afternoon tea. Or for a seasonal pub menu or fine dining, call in at the Master Builder’s House in the former home of Buckler’s Hard’s Master Builder.
