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.

However the recent outbreak of Coronavirus has meant a change to all our lives. As lockdown rules ease and businesses start to re-open we ask that you adhere to the government guidlines whilst out and about in Bournemouth and Poole. Many businesses have introduced new social distancing measures and you may be required to book in advance.

We will be updating our socials as much as possible so we’d really appreciate it if you could give us a follow. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

And keep an eye on our Latest News section where we will be posting regular updates about local attractions and news.
