Things To Do In Bournemouth
Bournemouth boasts some of the UK's best beaches, a pier and plenty of bistros and bars for outdoor living.
All that sand! Bournemouth enjoys some of the country's best weather, so you can have fun and get a tan!
Bournemouth's party reputation is thoroughly well deserved with amazing nightlife, top venues and great clubs.
The easiest way to get around the centre is on foot. Bournemouth is actually wonderfully compact so no need to squeeze into cabs.
If you are heading further afield for your Bournemouth activities then there are regular buses and trains that get out and about.
If you want to explore a bit more then hop on a ferry to Swanage or the famous millionaires' paradise of Sandbanks.
This seaside resort has so much to boast about, in particular, the Bournemouth nightlife is legendary! The heavy student population and summer crowds give the town a resort feeling all year round. The fun starts on the pier (great bar and restaurant) and sweeps in town with live music venues, comedy clubs, top restaurants, fast food, bars, bouncing clubs and we haven't even mentioned the fish and chips yet. Attracting big-name DJs and a great party crowd, Bournemouth nightlife is in a league of its own.
