Christchurch, Dorset – the location
The Lord Bute Hotel in Dorset can be found right next door to Highcliffe Castle, which is just on the edge of the naturally wonderful scenery of the New Forest, situated only two miles from the historic town of Christchurch and only eight miles from the cosmopolitan seaside town of Bournemouth.
Both Christchurch & Bournemouth offer fantastic days out boasting a variety of shops, restaurants and buzzing nightlife coupled with beautiful award winning gardens. Bournemouth also plays home to some of the most beautiful shores in the south offering water sports galore for the adventurous type and miles of sandy beaches for sunbathers.
The town is also home to the Bournemouth Air Festival which takes place late summer each year – an spectacle of airtime displays set against the stunning backdrop of the Britain’s finest beaches. For more information on this and other local attractions and events visit:
