Your guide to Bournemouth

When you think of a real British seaside holiday, you probably think of somewhere like Bournemouth. You picture theme parks, aquariums, parks and playgrounds, formal gardens and clean beaches complete with space to sunbathe, surf and build sandcastles. Bournemouth is exactly as you’d expect a modern seaside holiday to be, with everything from traditional fish and chip shops to modern bars and night clubs that keep the town alive after dark.

Back in the early 1800s, Bournemouth was promoted as a healthy place to live. The fresh sea air was said to have healing properties, encouraging tourists to flock to the area for their seaside holidays. Bournemouth grew quickly, with theatres and other cultural venues springing up throughout the town. Today Bournemouth remains as popular as it ever has been, with activities and attractions for families, couples and individuals
