The delightful seaside town of Bournemouth stretches out for seven miles along the southern coast of Dorset. It has a traditional appeal, encapsulated by the sight of painted beach huts and amusement arcades. Enthusiastic stag groups and aged tourists share space on the golden sands and look forward to evenings at the local entertainment venues. There's something for everyone in beautiful Bournemouth.
Those of you with an interest in cultural heritage will find plenty to see and do in Bournemouth. You could begin with a tour of the Russell Cotes Art Gallery and Museum. This grand exhibition centre is a prominent feature on the cliffs overlooking Bournemouth bay. It acts as the showcase for a variety of fine paintings and fascinating Japanese artefacts. Comprehensive tours are conducted by the museum staff on a daily basis.
You can further your knowledge of Bournemouth's local history with a visit to the Waterfront Museum. View the spectacular winged seaplanes and the Iron Age Long boat which was discovered during a historical survey of Poole harbour. Then observe magnificent moray eels, turtles and sharks in the Bournemouth Oceanarium.
Those of you who visit Bournemouth during the peak summer months will undoubtedly be tempted to spend time on the beach. You may build sand castles, enjoy family picnics or lay back and catch the perfect tan.
