Overview of Christchurch

The town of Christchurch is located South West of Gatwick airport a distance of 115 miles that would take around 2 hours by taxi via the M25, M3, M27 and A31. Christchurch is in the county of Dorset and is located on the South Coast of England between Bournemouth and the New Forest. The town's harbour, beaches, nature reserves and historically important buildings have made Christchurch a popular tourist destination attracting some 1.5 million visitors a year.

Founded in the 7th century at the confluence of the rivers Avon and Stour which flow into Christchurch Harbour, the town was originally named Twynham but became known as Christchurch following the construction of the priory in 1094. The town developed into an important trading port and was fortified in the 9th century. Further defences were added in the 12th century with the construction of a castle which was destroyed by the Parliamentarian Army during the English Civil War. During the 18th and 19th centuries smuggling flourished in Christchurch and became one of the town's most lucrative industries. The town was heavily fortified during Second World War as a precaution against an expected invasion. Christchurch has a population of 45,080 according to a 2007 census, making it the fourth most populous settlement in Dorset. It also has one of the oldest populations in the country with significant proportion of residents wealthy senior citizens. The percentage of the population aged over 65 in Christchurch is 30.4%, almost double the national average of 16.5%.

Every year since 2000 the town has held a food and wine festival during May. It includes an international food market with over 100 stalls selling food and drink, and a large marquee with a kitchen area erected in Saxon Square. Here cooking demonstrations are given, sometimes by a celebrity chef: past guests have included Gary Rhodes and Jean-Christophe Novelli. The week long festival is a community event which aims to educate people in healthy eating as well as the availability of foods. Christchurch also holds an annual music festival on the first weekend in July. Originally a folk festival, the event has evolved to cater for a wider variety of tastes: clog and morris dancing groups and salsa and belly dancing exhibitions have featured. Rock bands and soul groups have been included alongside the more traditional types of music. Another annual event is the regatta which has been held every year since 1909. It takes place around the second week in August and involves rowing competitions on the River Stour and a funfair sited on the adjacent town quay.

There is lots to see in Christchurch with the town centre comprising of a mixture of traditional public houses, restaurants, coffee shops, antiquated cottages and historic listed buildings, with the harbour itself providing a beautiful relaxed setting to watch the world go by. Christchurch Castle, Place Mill, Highcliffe Castle and Christchurch Priory are examples of the towns most historical buildings.
