The town of Christchurch is the most easterly town in Dorset. It is well connected with other part of England through roads (A35 to Southampton) and train service (main line from London, Waterloo to Bournemouth).
The protected salt marsh of Christchurch Harbour is a must see attraction in the town. The sand bars at the entrance makes it difficult for the administration to go for any other option than the shallow draught boats. The harbour is known for its amazing tides, which reach to adventurous levels in the spring. The interesting part about the harbor is its wildlife ranging from animals seeking refuge to birds seeking food.
The Christchurch Castle which dates back to the 12th century is a hot spot for historians and visitors. The great tower on the castle clearly tells its grandeur even from a distance. The administration of the town has not put enough care in the maintenance of the castle, which has caused severe damages to this relic. Still many can appreciate the historic evidence of its beauty by going through stonework and chimney that survive to this date.
One of the unique attractions of the town is the watermill located at Bandstand; the uniqueness lies in the fact that the mill takes water from one river and spills it into the other (The Avon and the Stour River respectively).The town also hosts a museum of electricity, which houses exhibits all around the year. One can benefit by going through these informative and historically rich exhibits.
