Bournemouth in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... beaches if any can state that as a tourist attraction on their lists. The beach lays between hengistbury head which is a famous landmark in the area thought to be over 60million years of age and a famous roman landmark, and then opposing this is sandbanks - an incredibly wealthy area of dorset known as the english algave. Above the pier of bournemouth beach are the upper and lower gardens these are award winning and one elegant section particularly is the open air art exhibition which is located at the top of the gardens on westover road. A collection of artists unite here daily throughout the summer to paint and sell their works and its a ... more

Ive lived in the area of bournemouth for most of my life and I have to say I love it here and its a very beautiful place to live, visit and the surrounding areas are just as beautiful. Bournemouth is on the south coast of england pretty much in between southampton and weymouth if looking longer distance. Its neighbouring towns are poole, christchurch and ringwood, each steeped with historical architecture, culture and unique elegance. Primarilly the area of bournemouth is a tourist town and hence throughout the year is brimming over full with tourists which can be a good and bad thing, however tourists come here for reasons and the main one being ...

My husband is from Dorset and I have been here 10 years now. Being from the North my first experience of Bournemouth was surreal, where were the bucket and spade shops I asked !?! Found in the sunny South of England, approximately 2 hours away from London by train Bournemouth is a sunny seaside town. It is very popular with young people as at has a lively night life and it is a favourite destination for stag and hen weekends. During the summer this popular destination provides a range of family friendly, free activities for example brass bands in the park, family entertainment e.g puppet shows and parachute games in a marquee in the ...

I've lived here most of my life, so I suppose its time to write a little ol' review on my home town! Bournemouth is a seaside town, situated on the south coast of the United Kingdom. It's supposedly the happiest town in England (survey courtesy of First Direct) and has the lowest levels of crime in England and Wales. Its about 2 hours outside of London, and is situated in East Dorset. I would imagine Bournemouth's a pretty nice place to come for the occasional holiday or for university. There's quite a few reasons people are attracted to Bournemouth for both work and play, and I can understand why. Bournemouth has a pretty good night ... Read the complete review

I have to admit that Bournemouth's beaches are brilliant and covered in golden sand. I have to rate this as my second favourite location in Dorset after Weymouth. Generally there are a number of little cliff like paths dropping down to the beach and a little train ride for those feeling a little exhausted. I first went to Bournemouth by coach around the age of 12 with my father as a day trip during the Summer holidays and remember walking through the park and seeing grey squirrels happily moving around trees and getting pretty close, and spending a while on the beach near the BIC (Bournemouth International Centre). Not long after I learned to ... Read the complete review

I adore Bournemouth, everything about this place is amazing. The shops are great, the only thing is there is loads of hills which can kill your legs. Just next to the shops there is a very large garden area which you can walk along - In the middle of a town this is amazingly beautiful, you can walk from here to the beach which is so great to get away from the buzz of the busy Bournemouth Centre. Bournemouth seems really big but once you've driven around for a while you realise that it''s not as big and scary as first impressions make it out to be. You quickly get a sense of direction to places. There is an IMAX 3-D cinema down by the beach, Oceanarium by the ... Read the complete review
