    The coastal town of Christchurch is situated approximately 10 kilometres (6 miles) east of Bournemouth, 38 kilometres (23 miles) west of Southampton and 174 kilometres (104 miles) southwest of London.

    Christchurch is situated between the River Avon which flows from the north of Salisbury and the River Stour, which flows from North Dorset. Both rivers flow directly into Christchurch Harbour, a large salt marsh protected by sandbar at the entrance. Due to the coastal location, Christchurch is a popular tourist location attracting some 189,000 staying visitors and 950,000 day visitors per year. As such, it is a seasonal town and will
    experience a significant increase in activity and trip-making during the summer months. The subject property is located on the south side of Bridge Street approximately 200 metres from the main High Street, where occupiers such as Mountain Warehouse, Boots, Costa Coffee etc
