Description

On the banks of the Beaulieu River, in the heart of the New Forest, you will find the peaceful haven of Bucklerís Hard. Originally called ĎMontagu Towní by John 2nd Duke of Montagu, Bucklerís Hard developed as a thriving shipbuilding village. Ships for Nelsonís fleet at Trafalgar were built at Bucklers Hard including his favourite, HMS Agamemnon. Today the village continues to thrive, unspoilt by the passage of time.

The ĎMaritime Museum & Buckerís Hard Storyí, with its reconstructed 18th century cottage interiors, will give you an insight into the history of the village and the river on which it stands. A new exhibition from May 2008 tells the remarkable story of the P&O liner, SS Persia, its links with Rolls Royce and the Montagu family and its sinking by a German U-Boat during WWI. Visitors can also enjoy a trip on the river or a walk through the woodlands to see some of the abundant wildlife and to take in the peace and natural beauty of the Beaulieu Estate.

By visiting Bucklerís Hard, you are contributing to its upkeep.

Open every day from 10am. Exit 2 M27.
We try not to take ourselves too seriously, we think omega replica sale that fun and humor has a place in the luxury world, and we really dislike pretentiousness. More so, we feel it is rolex replica uk important to be super transparent with our audience ®C a concept that, in many ways, is the anathema of the luxury industry. On top of that, we really dislike the idea of telling our breitling replica sale audience what to do. Myself and the team aren't people that like being told what to do (let's say that at least one rolex replica thing aBlogtoWatch staffers share in common is a disdain for traditional authority), rolex replica sale and we don't want to tell our audience what to do. We respect you and our mission is to educate and inform.
