Bournemouth is becoming internationally renowned for its many events and festivals. Static caravan hire provides cheap accommodation for a late summer, long weekend or mid-week break.
Imagine yourself on a tropical isle, where palm trees line the seafront and you may even discover a lizard speeding under a rock. Where is this stunning holiday destination, the tropics? No, it’s cosmopolitan Bournemouth, with its sparkling sea and golden sands.
What else is there to do, besides relaxing on the 7 miles of beach? Explore a wide variety of water sports, award-winning, beautiful gardens, endless countryside, a buzzing nightlife and a vast array of restaurants and shops. Here are our recommendations for alternative activities for all the family.
Cycle along the promenade
Here in Bournemouth, the land is entirely flat, where you can cycle along for miles without much effort. Take the route from Bournemouth to Sandbanks in the west, and Hengistbury Head in the east, without needing to embark on the roads. An alternative is to continue right onto Dorset’s Purbeck Peninsula by taking your cycle on the chain ferry at Sandbanks. It is possible to hire a bike on the seafront if you don’t have your own.
Take a ride on board the Land Train
For a more sedate mode of transport, take the Land Train, perhaps as far as Boscombe where the surfers hang out, or to one of the quieter seaside locations.
Experience life as a Penguin at the Oceanarium
This amazing, underwater centre showcases many species of tropical fish. They include an abundance of other sea creatures such as stingrays, graceful turtles and jellyfish.
View the stunning sunset at Hengistbury Head
Just a short bike ride, or drive along the seafront, will bring you to an area of land known to the locals as Hengistbury Head. Here you can view the shifting sands as the tide comes in, scramble up the sand dunes and explore the shingle beach. On a clear day, you can see both Bournemouth and Boscombe Piers, and even further on the horizon to the Purbeck Peninsula.
Take an End of the Pier Show like nothing you have ever experienced before!
In years gone by, the End of the Pier Show featured a magician, a theatre group and a band of musicians. These days, there is no longer even a wooden helter-skelter. The name of the game is the adrenalin rush, wherein Bournemouth your speed will come from the Rock Reef Pier Zip, as you race along the world’s first ever, zip wire from the pier to the beach.
