Bournemouth boasts seven miles of golden beaches, nearby Poole, Studland Bay and Swanage are just a short distance away and this area features a host of attractions. The town combines both a modern centre with beautiful parks and gardens and tree lined avenues with a wide variety of shops and amenities.
The New Forest is nearby and provides a beautiful countryside alternative to the coastal scene. Poole has three miles of golden sand of its own and is certainly not overshadowed by its neighbour.
Canford Cliffs beach is a popular destination and Poole Quay offers a great day out with an atmosphere all of its own. Good restaurants, cafes and pubs with a true seafaring tradition and plenty of yachts and shipping vessels constantly making their way in and out of the harbour.
