The Run, Christchurch Harbour
Live views of the Isle of Wight from Barton on Sea
This scenic live webcam if from Christchurch harbour entrance, known as “The Run”. The view is from the Black House at Mudeford Sandbank, a sandy peninsula with a beach and paths offering vast ocean views. To the north of the entrance is Mudeford Quay.
The natural harbour is a site of special scientific interest, a 352-hectare (870 acre) area that includes the estuaries of the Stour and Avon rivers and the Hengistbury Head peninsula. The area is great for sailing, canoeing, rowing, and windsurfing — it’s also an excellent place for birdwatching.
