Genteel Bournemouth isn’t just a pair of piers and long sandy stretches of beach (complete with traditional huts and funky beach ‘pods’ for hire). With its own artificial surf reef Bournemouth is even drawing surf aficionados from around the world. Explore further and you’ll benefit from its status as a gateway to the beautiful Hampshire and Dorset coast, with the New Forest also just a short journey away.
As well as Bournemouth Station, complete with one of the longest platforms in the country, Bournemouth also has three stunning Edwardian cliff railways – East Cliff, West Cliff and Fisherman’s Walk – open between April and October for smooth journeys up the cliff face... and the reward of a stunning view. Meanwhile, for journeys nearer to terra firma, Eastleigh Lakeside Steam Railway at Lakeside Country Park is a steam-hauled miniature railway experience open every weekend of the year.
