Things to do in Bournemouth
A large coastal resort town on the south coast of England, Bournemouth used to be a fairly desolate place before its founding by Lewis Tregonwell in 1810. The railway finally brought it to national attention and thus the town started to grow. Having escaped heavy bombing during WWII, it has now become an attraction for those seeking a spot of sun, pleasure and tranquility.
Being an ideal choice for relaxation, there are over seven miles of beaches that can be perused for kicking back, taking a dip and for getting the natural tan you’ve always wanted. The Russell Cotes Art Gallery and Museum offers the perfect haven for art and culture lovers, while the Grade I listed St Peter’s Church delivers architectural beauty and a 202 foot spire that can be admired by any cultured mind. Alternatively there is the Moor Country Park for long walks as well as other wooded areas in nearby neighbourhoods that sweep you away in their expanse and natural surroundings. Shoppers will feel blessed with the high street and shopping centers that are scattered throughout the town, providing a whole array of places to spend and shop to you drop. The town possesses a wide selection of restaurants and cafes that serve traditional foods as well as their own specialities.
Bournemouth Airport connects travellers to twenty three international destinations in nine countries (Cyprus, Finland, Greece , Italy, Malta, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and Turkey) with direct flights. There are great transport links for drivers on the A31 and A338 as well as two railway stations (Bournemouth and Pokesdown) that take users between London Waterloo and Weymouth.
