Bournemouth Mini Guide

Ferry services operate from the neighbouring port of Poole (approx. 10km) and also the nearby ports of Southampton and Portsmouth.  Ferries operate to the Channel Islands, St Malo, Cherbourg and mainland Europe. Bournemouth has two railway stations, the main Bournemouth station and Pokesdown to the East and there is a good local bus service.  If travelling by car the M3 and M27 are direct routes from London. Bournemouth is a popular tourist centre and is renowned for its excellent beaches.  There are seven miles of golden sands and clear blue water.


The Bournemouth International Centre is the venue for many major conferences and it also hosts theatrical productions and musical concerts.  The main cosmopolitan shopping area is situated just behind the seafront.  This area is mostly pedestrianised and has major department stores together with a good range of boutiques.  There is a first class range of restaurants, bars, clubs and cafes and a lively nightlife.  

Bournemouth has award-winning parks and floral gardens and these are perfect for a leisurely stroll or afternoon siesta.  Good leisure and sporting facilities are also available. Dorset has a very striking and beautiful coastline and car rental is an excellent option to tour the area.   Bournemouth is a good base from which to visit the nearby town of Poole and the market town of Christchurch.
