50.80° N  001.42° W

Visiting the picturesque Beaulieu River by boat is a magical experience.  From the twisting entrance all the way up to Beaulieu Village,  just about reachable at the top of the tide, expect boats, birds, peace and tranquillity.

There river has a smart marina and many hundreds of visitor and permanent moorings.

Most marine businesses are based at or around Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour, where boats up to 35T can be lifted out for survey or storage.

A visit to the unusual never-completed boat building village of Buckler’s Hard is a must – there is an excellent maritime museum at the top of the ‘High Street’ and the iconic Master Builder’s pub at the bottom.

Follow a path along the western river bank to the picturesque New Forest village of Beaulieu, Monty’s restaurant bar and the Palace House just beyond.  Don’t forget to try some of the famous New Forest ice cream.

Downstream, the Royal Southampton Yacht Club has a clubhouse next to the river where members and visiting yachtsmen can enjoy food and drink with beautiful open vistas of the estuary.
