Mudeford Quay is a small beautiful corner of the Borough of Christchurch in Dorset, England. Situated at the entrance of Christchurch Harbour, Mudeford Quay benefits from spectacular views along the coast, over to the Needles on the Isle of Wight & back to Christchurch town.

There is a nice walk to the quay along the seafront. Walk from Chewton Bunny in about an hour. Cafes along the route and a pub at the quay.

I used to come here on Sunday afternoons decades ago and have tea and cake on Sunday afternoon. The fishermen used to unload their lobster catch and fish. Things change but it is still a beautiful place to go!
