Visit the Maritime Museum and Buckler’s Hard Story to follow the development of this fascinating village, the story of its ships, and the residents who lived and worked here, perhaps take a step inside a historic shipwright's cottage, or simply amble down the high street to watch the boats sailing by on the idyllic Beaulieu River.
