Places to visit in Bournemouth
Seven miles of beaches
That’s right, seven miles of beaches for you to kick back and grab a tan on. Beaches aren’t for everyone, but you’d be mad not to take in the long view of never ending golden sand. Whether you choose the Bournemouth Pier or go further along to the town of Poole, you’ll be able to relax after a long week in the boiling sun with an ice cream and a big smile.
Russell Cotes Art Gallery and Museum
A home, an art gallery and a museum all in one place. Merton Russell-Cotes had the lavish house built for his wife in 1901 as a birthday present and stored many objects from their travels as well as splendid artwork within it. Guests can browse the incredible interior, grand objects and exquisite paintings as they go round. A perfect day out can be had here full of art, history and culture.
St Peter’s Church
A Grade I listed building, this grand church incorporates Gothic Revival touches within its stunning architecture. The 202 foot spire is a local landmark and the church itself makes for a great attraction for visitors who adore architectural glory and stained glass paintings. Ideal if you love art and architecture or just want somewhere peaceful to clear your head.
Moors Valley Country Park
Outside of the centre is this great land of greenery that is as tranquil as it is breathtaking. Talk a walk, have a run, cycle round or however you want to explore the surroundings. Take a breath of country air and enjoy the surrounding plants and wildlife as you take a break from the stuffy office and daily commute.
