The Arlington Hotel is one of the best locations for a Family Summer Break in Bournemouth.
Bournemouth has one of the best beaches in the UK. A large, safe beach for families with added peace of mind of the LV=Kidzone scheme.
The beach is just a short 5-minute stroll away, down the path in Bournemouth Gardens, away from roads and traffic. Before you reach the beach there is the fabulous new water play area on Pier Approach, an absolute delight for the little ones (and quite stress-free for parents too!)
Apart from the beach, Bournemouth has some great free summer holiday activities in the Gardens and on the Pier Approach, just beyond the gate to the Arlington:
Candlelight Nights – Bournemouth Gardens are transformed into a magical candlit world.
Summer Live – Live Music in Bournemouth Square
Friday Fireworks –Free display 10pm Fridays in August on Bournemouth Pier
Children’s workshops – summer holidays in the Lower Gardens
