Bournemouth

Bournemouth is a popular seaside resort located in Dorset, on the south coast of England. Famous for its impressive cliff line, the bay enjoys its own micro-climate, with some of the warmest temperatures in the UK and scenic views of the Isle of Wight and the Purbecks. Besides the natural beauty of its parks, gardens and seven miles of award-winning beaches, Bournemouth is vibrant and cosmopolitan, offering a wide variety of shops, restaurants, seafront hotels and exciting nightlife. Nature and city-life are combined with a distinctive historical and cultural heritage. Many famous writers have lived in, or had connections with the Bournemouth area, such as Thomas Hardy, Mary Shelley, Robert Louis Stevenson and JRR Tolkien. The town is centrally located, two hours by train from London and conveniently serviced by public transport, good road links, an international airport and nearby ports.

Bournemouth is situated on the south coast of England and is less than two hours from London. With a population of just over 163,000, it is large enough to have all the facilities of a big town but small enough that you never feel lost.
