Christchurch Quay, from the quay you can find a ferry that will take you over to Hengistbury Head, also a little further along the Quay there is a ferry boat that will take you across the river to the pretty village of Wick or even onto theTuckton tearooms. This ferry started around 1880 by Eli Miller, and only christchurch quaycost a halfpenny to cross the river. Generally the Christchurch quay is a beautiful place to visit and for the kids there is a play ground and a fairly big playing field.
