Christchurch Quay is a popular attraction for all the family and comprises two main areas: The Quomps and Town Quay. The Quomps is a flat, open, grassed area containing a splashpark and children's play area.
Town Quay is a more enclosed, grassed area. Place Mill, dating from 1100AD is open to the public and is now an Art Gallery. During summer the Victorian bandstand holds concerts. Boats are available for hire. There is a ferry service to the opposite bank of the river at Wick. Mini-golf and a wishing well are also found on the Quay.
A pleasant riverside promenade runs the length of the site from the Quay to Wick Ferry and the slipway for public use.
