With seven glorious miles of idyllic coastline, visitors are sure to find a number of surprising things to do in the beautiful coastal town of Bournemouth, all year round. Bournemouth is a coastal resort town in the area of Dorset. It is situated on the English south coast, equidistant from Dorchester and Southampton. Famed for its beautiful golden beaches, vibrant local culture and holiday-feel, this wonderful part of the South has something to offer everyone. The beach itself is rated as TripAdvisors number one top attraction in Bournemouth and is nicely summarised as simply, ‘a delight’. Nestled on Bournemouth pier, there are an abundance of things to do, no matter the weather. Activities include museums, galleries, amusement arcades, a climbing centre and beach-to-shore zip-wire, mini-golf, play parks, beach huts, and an oceanarium. Its beautiful sandy beach provides the ideal scene for visitors to take to their surfboard, kayak, or paddleboard and get straight out onto the peaceful open water. For those wanting to explore a lot of Bournemouth in a short space of time, the hop-on, hop-off bus and boat tour from City Sightseeing is ideal. For those who have more time to explore Bournemouth, we recommend adding the Jurrasic Coast to the itinerary; with 185 million years of history this UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the prettiest areas of England. This is a hugely diverse landscape of geological importance as it is made up of rocks spanning some 185 million years of geological history, covering the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods.
