Bournemouth

Famous for 7 miles of golden sand, this classic seaside resort combines old world charm with wonderful seafood restaurants and a boisterous pub scene.

BOURNEMOUTH - AT A GLANCE

  • Bournemouth has all the character and magic of a classic British seaside resort, from the flashy lights of the old-school amusements to the vinegary scent of fish and chips lingering in the air.  
  • There’s lots to do when the sun is shining: unwind in tropical Alum Chine Gardens with its Treasure Island themed play area, get the adrenaline pumping on an exhilarating Jetski Safari tour or work off all the ice-cream with a scenic stroll to the top of Hengistbury Head.
  • Don’t miss the eccentric Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum, the former home of Victorian travellers Sir Merton Russell-Cotes and Lady Annie. Alternatively, try out the UK’s first 6D cinema – more like a rollercoaster, really.
  • Did you know? Bournemouth is a great starting point for a tour of the Jurassic Coast - a World Heritage Site of hidden bays and crumbling cliffs.
  • Go to the Bournemouth Tourist Board for more ideas for fun things to see and do.
  • By train, the journey to Bournemouth from London takes around 1 hour 50 minutes.
