Welcome to Bournemouth – a world class resort that has everything you need for a perfect holiday or short break, and where there’s a host of sights and activities within easy reach.

Relax on our award winning beaches, with seven miles of golden sand fringing the clear blue sea. Wander through our exquisite parks and gardens, or explore our vast range of shops – from fascinating boutiques to large department stores.

Experience the wealth of entertainment and amusements available for all ages and tastes. And when you fancy a spot to eat, take your choice from the restaurants, bars and bistros, offering everything from traditional English fare to the finest exotic cuisines.

Travel further afield, and you’ll soon find stately homes, ruined castles and picturesque villages. Alternatively, you can savour the beauty of the New Forest, drink in the splendour of Dorset’s spectacular World Heritage Jurassic coastline; or enjoy the rolling countryside where Thomas Hardy lived.

At the end of the day, slip back to the comfort of your accommodation, go to sleep, and dream of what you will do tomorrow!
