 8 Things to do in  Bournemouth


  1. Browsea Island: It is a bird and natural sanctuary, most of which can be visited. It is located in Poole Harbour. It is an ideal place to spend the day. There you can see a host of fascinating animals and plants, find the perfect spot for a picnic, and even explore the history of the Scout movement.
  2. Bournemouth Oceanarium : It is one of the great attractions of this town, where you can enjoy at any time of the year. Small in size, but perfectly equipped, the Oceanarium allows visitors to have fun getting to know different marine species, seeing how they are fed and interacting with its facilities. Without a doubt, a unique experience.
  3. Bournemouth Pier : A true hub of adventure activities on a pretty jetty overlooking the sea. It is also home to numerous cafes, restaurants and an activity center with rides that are guaranteed to give you an adrenaline rush. The Rock Reef Activity Center is the main attraction on the pier, with exciting rides for kids and young-at-heart adults. It is essential to try the PierZip, a unique zip line that goes from the pier to the seashore and that allows you to fly over the waves in a dizzying cable ride to the beach.
  4. Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum : This innovative museum houses objects and artifacts of all kinds, as well as furniture. Temporary exhibitions are offered. The place itself is an old house, luxuriously decorated, with large glass windows, and a dreamy floral garden, where you can rest quietly and enjoy wonderful views. The annex buildings have activities for children, as well as a comfortable cafeteria.
  5. Boscombe Market : A good way to spend a morning in Bournemouth is to visit Boscombe Market. Open from Thursday to Saturday, it has become an essential place for lovers of fresh and exotic products. The Street Food trend is becoming more and more present in the market, where you can find dishes from India, Thailand or Brazil, as well as traditional British dishes: hamburgers, cakes or the typical fish and chips. In addition to food, there are also stalls selling clothing, jewelry, plants, flowers, and much more.
  6. Water sports : A common sight on the Bournemouth coast is to see many young people in the water waiting to catch a wave under their surfboard. And it is that this English town is an ideal place to practice all kinds of water sports. From skiing, rowing, diving, fishing, swimming or surfing. Thus, a long etcetera to enjoy the wonderful beaches of the South of England.
  7. Stroll through the Lower Gardens : These gardens are part of the city’s three green spaces and feature a Victorian design. This park is located south of the central gardens and high gardens, and has beautiful flower displays throughout the year. Strolling through the park and contemplating the deep red and lavender flower arrangements is one of the unforgettable experiences, enjoying the tranquility of a picnic under the shade of a tree.
  8. Have a drink in The Square : It is the heart of the city, the meeting point par excellence, so it is always very busy and full of life. Listen to live music sitting in a hammock or eat a freshly made hamburger in a beach house in the middle of the city. This is what you can do in The Square, a simply charming place.
