Boasting miles of beautiful coastline, stunning sandy beaches and waterfront restaurants serving some of the freshest seafood in the South, Bournemouth is the ultimate British seaside destination. The town's superb selection of shops, convenient transport links and variety of coastal attractions combine to make it a fantastic place to visit. It’s no surprise that serviced apartments in Bournemouth are popular for long-term business stays and extended leisure breaks alike! Bournemouth Pier boasts an amusement arcade, variety theatre, cafe and boat trips along the coast; as well as RockReef climbing centre and PierZip for the more adventurous. If you’re looking for something a little more sedate, head to Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum where you can admire Victorian and pre-Raphaelite art in a beautiful villa. For more contemporary works, Bobby’s in Bournemouth Square is home to GIANT – as well as exhibitions, the venue hosts creative workshops and family activities on Saturdays.
After a day at the beach, a short stroll through the tranquil Lower Gardens will take you directly into Bournemouth's main shopping district, featuring a variety of high street brands, independent shops and cafes. Bournemouth’s pedestrianised high street stretches in four directions from the town square and the town is perfect for a fashion fix! Head to Westover Road for some really exclusive boutiques and retailers, including Bournemouth staples Richmond Classics and Roberta Boutique. If you prefer your fashion pre-loved, try Parade Vintage for classic clothing from times gone by. There are also several quaint indoor shopping arcades to explore – great for rainy days. Bournemouth’s newest shopping area, Castlepoint, is located just north of the town centre and offers 40+ shops with the added bonus of free parking.
Sample the local produce and fresh seafood at Bournemouth's waterfront restaurants and food markets. Try Neo Restaurant for refined plates, or ever-popular So:Bo Fish for no-frills seafood in a down-to-earth setting. Family-run El Murrino brings the taste of Italy while over at Lola’s there’s homemade tapas on offer. And you can even get authentic Canadian classics at Moose Kitchen! The traditional Dorset cream teas are also a must whilst you're in town; Frieda’s Tearoom and Dot Teas Vintage Tea Boutique are both firm favourites. Need a caffeine fix after all those sweets? Espresso Kitchen Bournemouth, South Coast Coffee and Fika Bournemouth are all brilliant spots for a well-made coffee.
Relax and enjoy an evening of entertainment at the Bournemouth International Centre, or watch a performance at one of the sister venues, the Pavilion Theatre and the Pier Theatre. Whether you are looking for fun night out with friends or a romantic date, there is something for everyone in Bournemouth as the town offers a really diverse range of pubs, bars and nightclubs. At GinJams you’ll find sophisticated cocktails and fondue, while Renoufs is the spot for a glass of fine wine to compliment a selection of local artisan cheeses and charcuterie. For a relaxed pint and home-cooked food made with locally-sourced produce, try multi-award winning Goat and Tricycle. You can also head to Sixty Million Postcards to find out if the pub truly does have ‘Bournemouth’s sunniest beer garden’ or pop into The Brass Haus for a bierkeller experience.
