WELCOME TO ‘BOURNEMOUTH BOATING SERVICES LIMITED’

 

Food, fun & ferries!

At Bournemouth Boating Services, we offer a wide range of boating experiences, from hiring your own private boat, to joining a ferry cruise; we’re based in Tuckton, on the bank of the River Stour which flows into Christchurch Harbour, adjoining Hengistbury Head!

We offer river cruises and a frequent ferry service between Tuckton Tea Gardens, Wick Ferry, Christchurch Quay and Mudeford Sandbank for the beach and Hengistbury Head. Self-Drive Motor Boats are also available for hire at Wick Ferry & Christchurch Quay.

Tuckton Tea Gardens is a traditional cosy café set in beautiful gardens right beside the River; where you might like to hire a boat for an hour or two, to explore the stunning views down the river Stour and Christchurch Priory.

You can sit back, relax and watch the boats go by in our extremely well-kept gardens, enjoy a bite to eat or keep the children amused at our putting green and crazy-golf course! 

 

TUCKTON TEA GARDENS & THE GARDEN HATCH!

We sell hot and cold drinks, light lunches and a selection of New Forest ice creams!

Relax in the beautiful surroundings and enjoy a range of delicious homemade cakes, soups & snacks!
