October Half-term in Bournemouth

October Half-term in Bournemouth starts on Friday 20 October 2017 and ends on Sunday 29 October 2017.

Pop down to Bournemouth and enjoy a short break with your family. There is plenty to keep kids entertained, and even a couple of things that mum and dad might enjoy!

The weather in Bournemouth can still be in the mid to high teens throughout October, so there is a pretty good chance of spending time on the beach – building sandcastles and playing beach games.
