In an exciting new addition to Bournemouth’s Christmas line-up, from Thursday 8th December visitors and residents will be able to experience panoramic views of the resort’s award-winning seafront as a big wheel arrives in Pier Approach for the festive period, along with an interactive screen, enchanted Christmas tree walkway and Santa’s post box.
Priced at £5 for adults and £4 for children, the big wheel will be in Bournemouth’s relandscaped Pier Approach area from 8 December 2016 – 7 January 2017 and will run from 10am – 10pm daily.
Bournemouth residents will also be entitled to 50p off the ticket price with proof of a BH postcode.
The wheel and walkway come courtesy of Bournemouth’s Coastal BID whose members have rallied together to bring a new experience to the seafront for 2016.
Stefan Krause, Coastal BID Manager, enthused: “’After the successful Christmas Celebration launch event on the seafront, I can’t wait to see these seasonal attractions in the same location, adding more bright sparkles to the festive skyline and attracting more visitors to our beloved coastal destination, Bournemouth!”
Meanwhile, the Christmas offer continues in the gardens and town centre until 3 January 2017 thanks to Bournemouth’s Town Centre BID.
Steve Hughes, Town Centre BID Manager, said: “Bournemouth is putting on a real show this Christmas. In the town centre we have a bigger and better ice rink, illuminated gardens, Nutcracker Trail and our popular Snow Globe still to come. With our great shops, bars and restaurants, as well as free parking on late night shopping Thursdays and Sundays, Bournemouth is the place to be.”
