Bournemouth is superbly situated on the sunny south coast on chalk cliffs overlooking seven miles of golden sand. It is internationally renowned for its natural beauty as well as its cultural vibrancy and diversity. Situated amongst magnificent gardens and backing onto golden sands, Bournemouth town centre is lively and cosmopolitan with a smattering of foreign tongues adding to the Continental atmosphere.

It is marked by pedestrian boulevards and street cafés. In high summer there is free entertainment, including candle illuminations, firework evenings and live music from the garden bandstands, as well as magnificent concerts from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. To see the resort from a different angle, why not take a cruise from the pier or try the 'Bournemouth Eye', a tethered balloon which rises to 160 metres over the Gardens, giving a bird's-eye view of the town.

Bournemouth lies in close proximity to a number of intriguing landscapes, towns, villages and magnificent cultural sites. The Dorset coastline, marked by its Jurassic rock forms, has been made a World Heritage site whilst the New Forest, an area protected by the National Trust, provides a home for wild ponies, deer and cattle. Salisbury not only boasts one of the oldest and most majestic cathedrals in the country, but the surrounding plain is also home to vast expanses of rolling countryside and of course, the enigmatic Stonehenge.

Town Centre

The Avenue shopping centre is home to a number of department stores and High Street names, whilst Westover Road, affectionately known as the ‘Bond Street of Bournemouth', has a selection of quirky boutiques and smaller retailers nestled beside each other along a stylish tree-lined boulevard.

Beach and Gardens

Bournemouth offers seven miles of clean, safe Blue Flag bathing beaches. Bournemouth's award-winning gardens amount to around 200,000 acres of sub-tropical Mediterranean plants and trees, from February catkins and sweet gum trees to palm trees and alpine rock plants. Boscombe's Italianate Gardens, with Roman-style colonnades and the Alum Chine gardens, which occupy a superb cliff-top position are well worth a visit.
