I decided that our day out would be to Bucklers Hard. An 18th century village where warships for Nelsons navy were built. Set in an idealistic village, surrounded by Beautiful scenery on the Beaulieu river.
The Maritime museum has items dating back to Admiral Nelson and his crew members, as well as many other boats that were made at Beaulieu.
