The Shipyard that built Nelson's Navy. Maritime museum, restored 18th century Village and themed exhibitions. River cruise with commentary of the historic waterside sights.

On the banks of the Beaulieu River, in the heart of the New Forest, you will find the peaceful and historic haven of Buckler’s Hard.  Ships for Nelson’s fleet at Trafalgar were built here and today the village is still unspoilt by the passage of time. The Maritime Museum and Buckler’s Hard Story, with reconstructed cottage interiors, will give you an insight into the history of the village – the included boat cruise provides an opportunity to take in the tranquil countryside and wildlife.
