Visiting Bournemouth

The town's beaches are well-known throughout the UK. Boscombe Pier, opened 1889 and extended and renovated since then, is a popular destinations for tourists as well as locals. The beaches are very popular, due in part to how well maintained they are, and due to the region’s hot summers.

St Peter’s Church, which saw its completion in 1879, is another stop-off for tourists. Bournemouth railway station was built in July 1885 and featured an impressive glass canopy roof, which to this day is one of the station's most representative features and is in itself a location worth having a look at.

Bournemouth will also delight culture enthusiasts with The Pavilion, which shows West End productions, as well as operas and ballet. Families will also find entertainment at the city’s very own air show, which is held each year in August.
