Buckle down to Nelsonís village
Beautiful, unspoilt Buckler’s Hard on the banks of the River Beaulieu – where the famous Vice-Admiral’s favourite ship, HMS Agamemnon, was built – has a great story to tell and throughout the summer Living History characters will take on the roles to enact the unique tales of the people who lived there.
Visitors will get the chance to meet Balthazar, the son of the Master Shipbuilder, the Shipwright’s wife Arabella Burlace and follow in the footsteps of Countryfile’s Matt Baker who got into character as a swashbuckling smuggler pirate to discover the Buckler’s Hard Story which inspired a wealth of art, literature and films.
It’s easy to imagine the life that once thrived along the gently sloping street which leads to the stunning waterfront and a more sedate lifestyle in the 18th Century. The passage of time has left Buckler’s Hard relatively untouched by modern life. It is the ideal backdrop for Living History characters to bring their world alive during weekends in July and every day throughout the summer holidays, from July 27 to September 2.
Step inside an original, genuine shipwright builder’s 18th Century cottage, visit the re-designed Maritime Museum and follow the Woodland Walk to discover how local timber at Buckler’s Hard was used to construct ships for the British Navy in the 18th and 19th centuries. You can also see how a boat-building project is using oak timbers from the Beaulieu Estate to make the framework of a ship using traditional techniques.
To view Buckler’s Hard from the water, visitors can take a River Cruise* which sails past Daniel Craig’s indigenous boat used in Quantum of Solace. In a daring high-speed stunt scene, Craig’s Bond landed his motorbike on the boat before a gunfight on its deck and a dramatic water chase. The boat has been put on display as part of BOND IN MOTION, the world’s largest display of Bond vehicles in the world at sister attraction Beaulieu to mark 50 years of iconic OO7.
Picturesque Buckler’s Hard is the ideal setting for a day of exploration and relaxation in the heart of the New Forest National Park.
Its Captain’s Cabin Tea Room has a newly landscaped garden and terrace where you can enjoy delicious lunches and cream teas before or after a visit to the village, outside the paying barriers for local visitors. The Master Builder’s Hotel at the bottom of the street offers luxurious accommodation, a bar and restaurant with stunning river views.
For as little as £10, an annual pass offers unlimited visits to Buckler’s Hard for 12 months from the date of purchase. Pass holders also receive 10% off gifts at the Maritime Museum shop and discounted entry to the New Forest Centre in Lyndhurst and St Barbe Museum in Lymington
Buckler’s Hard is open daily from 10am. For more information visit www.bucklershard.co.uk
