Beautiful Bournemouth with its twelve kilometres of golden European Blue Flag Award sandy beaches, glorious sunshine and fish and chip suppers is also famed for being Thomas Hardy country. Until 1974, the southern coastal town of Bournemouth came under the jurisdiction of Hampshire and now belongs to Dorset, one of the most popular holiday destinations in the country.
Bournemouth joins with Poole and Christchurch to form a sprawling urban conurbation. A lively and hugely metropolitan district, the student town of Bournemouth also offers contrast of the seafront and traditional seaside aspect to the town.
Situated in the district known as Poole Bay, Bournemouth offers a lovely seaside resort complete with pier and various amusements up and down the esplanade. Water sports facilities at the Sandbanks Peninsula are second to none with a choice of adrenalin activities from parasailing to jet skiing.
If and when a change of scenery from the sea is required, Bournemouth offers some excellent shopping possibilities but a street away from the beaches. The town centre is made up of pedestrian walkways, Victorian arcades and many a café to help recharge those batteries!
Where to enjoy the afternoon nap is all that is left to consider following a spot of sunbathing on the beach and a burst of shopping in the town. Bournemouth Central Gardens offers the perfect escape from it all. The place where people come to read the day’s newspaper in peace or to canoodle or just to relax, the gardens are a must for anyone visiting the town.
Situated on the “Jurassic Coast” a world heritage site as proclaimed by UNESCO, with 95 miles of largely unspoilt coast at your fingertips, there is plenty to explore away from Bournemouth’s good old seaside pier and children’s sand castle pitches.
The coastline is not the only natural and unspoilt attraction in the area. Head out to the east of Bournemouth and it will not be too long before you discover the New Forest. Today known as the New Forest National Park, this area of natural beauty is mentioned in the Domesday Book and was once royalty hunting ground. Home of the cute New Forest pony, much of the forest is made up of bogs and heath lands so be prepared for some difficult terrains. Lyndhurst, the capital of the New Forest is an excellent place to make a beeline for while in the area. Sporting tin bucket loads of charm, take your pick from the interesting shops and inviting cafes you will inevitably encounter along your journey.
Bournemouth’s aquarium, the Oceanarium should not be missed if a love of the sea is what has brought you to Bournemouth in the first place. Offering reconstructions of places like South America’s Amazon, India’s Ganges River, the Mediterranean Sea and many more, visitors can experience first hand the species of life forms that are found at such exotic locations.
Very well connected by road networks, Bournemouth is easily reached from London thanks to the M3, A31 and M27 and also providing an excellent link to the M4 for the west of the country and Wales.
In addition to the roads, Bournemouth is easily accessible by rail. The two railway stations here, Bournemouth Railway Station and Pokesdown Railway Station connect easily to the South West train service allowing commuters to arrive in London (Waterloo Station connection) within 97 minutes of departure.
Travel by sea is possible from Bournemouth despite the absence of a harbour as our continental neighbours of the Channel Islands and France can be reached from closely situated Poole port.
With its excellent location and easy access from surrounding towns and cities, Bournemouth satisfies the needs of a growing centre for business and that of its large student population with its giant BIC venue. At the Bournemouth International Centre Pavilion they mix business with pleasure playing host to regional trade events as well as rock and pop gigs.
Not only is Bournemouth a lovely atmospheric seaside town in its own right, it is well situated for touring some of the other south coast tourist hotspots
Home of Poole Pottery, Poole Harbour is only next door to Bournemouth and a sight to behold! A walk along the harbour path presents fishermen repairing their fishing nets, boats in dock ready to take tourists out around Brownsea Island as well as hundreds of yachts and cruise liners bobbing up and down in mooring. Lined with pubs and restaurants for a speciality fish dish or a takeaway crepe, the Poole harbour road is a hive of activity all hours of the day or night. Just off from the harbour is Poole town centre serving an undercover shopping centre, a pedestrianized high street and the ever-ubiquitous scientologists sporting questionnaires and persuasive grins.
