Bournemouth’s seven-mile stretch of golden sand has been a favourite since the Victorian era. Holiday cottages in Bournemouth are generally walking-distance from the sea – and it’s a great town to explore by foot. Take a stroll along the award-winning seafront, where a wonderful assortment of attractions can be enjoyed. With surfing, go-karting, water-parks and aquariums, there’s no shortage of things to do. This bustling resort is also home to a thriving food scene, lively nightlife and lovely selection of independent shops. As you wander from Bournemouth to Boscombe Pier, you’ll discover stunning Victorian gardens with a bandstand, aviary, art exhibitions and ornamental rockery. With their Gothic-style water tower and pretty red bridges over the Bourne Stream, the Central and Upper Gardens are well worth a look, too.
