Golden sand, beautiful gardens and stunning bay views - Bournemouth is the perfect destination for a day in the sun.
With 4 award winning blue flag beaches, Bournemouth’s 7 miles of beach tempts thousands of sun worshipers every year. If sunbathing isn’t your thing, thrill seekers can book action packed rib rides from Bournemouth Pier, or hire a surfboard or kayak for the afternoon from Boscome Pier. Families can benefit from LV=KidZone, a free child safety scheme which operates during the summer. Want to do it all? Catch the Land Train from one end to the other.
The Gardens follow the Bourne stream to the town centre passing parks, tennis courts, and mini golf to the Bournemouth Eye.
With brands such as Monsoon, Karen Millen and Zara, Bournemouth town centre is a great place for some shopping, especially if your visit involves a night out in one of our lively evening venues.
Bournemouth’s theatres cater for everyone's interests, be it musicals at the Pavilion, comedy at the BIC, or the latest blockbusters at the ABC and Odeon cinemas.
There are some great events too. Over the summer the Bournemouth Air Festival always draws the crowds, as do weekly firework nights, candle lightings and family fiestas – and these are all free!
