Bob Wilson enthuses about Hengistbury Head

Former footballer and BBC sports commentator Bob Wilson has described Hengistbury Head as his favourite place “just ahead of Bermuda”.

“Hengistbury…embodies the magic of the British coast” says Bob in today’s Sunday Times Travel section. “I used to run round the headland at dawn, then jump in the sea for a skinny-dip.

“Now my wife and I walk or cycle out there, and the further you go, the more remote it feels, especially in a winter storm.”

Bob once had a beach hut on Sandspit below the Head and still recommends its cafe.
