Things to do in  Bournemouth

Welcome to Bournemouth

With a 7-mile (11-kilometer) expanse of soft, golden sand, Bournemouth is said to have one of the finest beaches along England’s South Coast. That’s certainly helped establish its reputation as a popular resort town, as have the historic Bournemouth Pier and many entertainment options along the water’s edge. But there are more things to do in Bournemouth than visit the waterfront—visitors can also explore the wealth of Victorian architecture; cultural destinations such as the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum and Mary Shelley’s grave; the destination-worthy Upper, Middle, and Lower Gardens; and the nearby UNESCO-listed Jurassic Coast.
