Bournemouth has seven miles of beautiful beaches and a vibrant town that offers varied and exciting shopping and restaurants. There are also superb theatres that regularly host world renowned shows and acts.

There is always plenty to do in Bournemouth, and a host of free festivals and things to do. The Bournemouth Air Festival is internationally recognised, and always draws huge crowds, and the new Wheels Festival looks set to achieve similar success. Other annual events including a marathon, a  triathlon,  and regular free live concerts and fireworks in the summer.

Bournemouth is one of the sunniest places in the UK. The weather isn’t always perfect BUT… it’s usually better than anywhere else in the UK!

The beaches are some of the best in the country and consistently achieve Blue Flag status.

Bournemouth has plenty to offer for walkers, cyclists, anglers, shoppers and sun seekers.

Add to this that Bournemouth is approximately two hours from London by road. Public transport is superb, and there are sightseeing bus tours in Bournemouth and further afield.

In our opinion, the best thing about Bournemouth is The Arlington Hotel – but don’t take our word for it, come and spend a few days here and see for yourself.
