About Bournemouth

Bournemouth is a large coastal resort town on the south coast of England. Bournemouth's seven miles of beach and exceptionally warm microclimate make it a favorite of U.K. travelers. There's something for everyone here, whether you're a watersports fanatic or just want to let your kids splash around in the calm waters. Over four million tourists flock to the town every year and it is true, the vibrant cosmopolitan town of Bournemouth has it all. Explore a vast variety of shops, restaurants a buzzing nightlife and endless countryside with beautiful award-winning gardens. Ancient castles and cathedrals punctuate the inland areas and the town hosts a lively mixture of locals, students and holiday-makers.

Things to do in Bournemouth

Bournemouth's sea is perfect for an early morning dip, surf lessons or body boarding. There is a vast array of watersports to choose from – even if you're a beginner. Europe's first artificial surf reef in Boscombe is attracting surfers from around the World. The wider Bournemouth area is relatively flat, meaning that cycling is enjoyable. Cycles can be rented locally.

The titular Bournemouth Beach is an easy walk from the town center, and sits in the middle of miles of sand. Take a stroll out onto central Bournemouth Pier for some fun activities such as the Zip Wire, and fine views along the coast in both directions. The Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum contains one of the south coast's best collections of mainly Victorian art, furniture and memorabilia.

Bournemouth's stunning coastline is full of action all year round as it hosts fantastic events and festivals. In spring, Bournemouth Wheels Festival roars into action with displays and demonstrations featuring monster trucks, supercars and quad bike stunts. In August, it's the annual Bournemouth Air Festival – the biggest event of its kind in the world.
