Welcome to Bournemouth and Poole

Bournemouth and Poole has it all – miles of glorious sandy beaches, the worlds second largest natural harbour, top family attractions, a host of world class events and endless things to do.

From Monday 12th April lockdown restrictions will be eased further with the opening of non-essential shops, pubs and restaurants (outdoors). Bournemouth and Poole has plenty to see and do locally so why not get out there and explore! Please note that not all establishments will be open yet and those that are may be operating at a reduced capacity and/or requiring booking in advance so if in doubt please contact the venue before you visit.
