111 Places in Bournemouth That You Shouldn't Miss Paperback / softback

Part of the 111 Places/Shops series

Paperback / softback


The number of ice creams bought along Bournemouth's seafront each year: 750,000.

The number of deckchairs hired out on a busy weekend: 3,000.

The number of trees standing proud in the town: 47,000.

Having long since shrugged off its reputation as God's waiting room, Bournemouth and its surrounding areas have a boundless number of places to discover, explore and relish.

Whether you're a curious local, a seasoned traveller or a one-time visitor, these 111 places will surprise, delight and astonish you.

Amble over the bridge that won World War II, get whisked off on an Asian adventure, learn about Charlie Chaplin's connection to the town, visit Florence Nightingale's grave, order a Zubrowka (whatever that is), gaze into the real Alice in Wonderland's mirror, make friends with an Egyptian mummy, stand beneath the lamppost AFC Bournemouth was formed under, and walk in the footsteps of the Fab Four, as well as the woman who brought the British government to its knees.

As you explore, take your time, take photos and take advantage of everything this extraordinary, astounding, fascinating area has to offer.

The number of times you'll gasp as you discover something new: countless.
