Why Have A Weekend In Bournemouth?
With seven miles of golden sands, sparkling sea, and beautiful gardens, Bournemouth is starting to rival Brighton as the South East's go-to beach. Bournemouth also has many green parks so plenty of space to relax and enjoy your weekend. When you're not at the beach, don't forget to visit the Lighthouse - the largest arts centre outside of London that regularly plays host to comedy shows, theatrical performances and workshops. Alternatively, stroll along the promenade and pick up a 99 whilst perusing the quirky shops and fancy hotels in the English sunshine.
