Say Hello to Bournemouth & Poole!

With miles of the most glorious sandy beaches, the worlds second largest natural harbour, hidden islands, rocky outcrops, a world heritage coastline and endless things to do to keep you busy for a lifetime Bournemouth and Poole really has it all!

We are privileged to have such a variety of activities to really stir your adrenalin. From watersports such as sailing, powerboating and coasteering to high octane experiences like paintballing, abseiling, bushcraft and much more!

If you are in need of a little escapism then why not try a pampering session or spa day. How about retreating to our fabulous parks and gardens or hit the beach with a picnic. Alternatively why not take up a class to really free your mind whilst meeting some great new friends!

When it comes to eating, drinking and partying, few do it better. We have some of the finest restaurants, bars and clubs for an array of party goers, each delivering a distinct vibe, day and night. And of course we’re a top hen and stag do destination!

And our holiday accommodation, from top quality hotels to quaint little campsites, will ensure you have the perfect night’s sleep, leaving you energised and refreshed to explore our coast even more.

Finally you can’t beat Bournemouth and Poole for their fantastic events, such as the fabulous (and free!) Air Festival and Wheels Festival. With an extensive programme of events throughout the year make sure you check out our what’s on guide so you don’t miss out.
