Bournemouth is Dorset’s biggest resort and is ideal for families and couples alike.

Bournemouth’s beaches are the jewels in its crown.

The city has retained the internal Blue Flag award status since it was first introduced in 1996 for beaches such as Alum Chine, Southbourne and Sandbanks.

From the town centre, you can head down to Pier Approach through the Lower Gardens and enjoy sea views from the historic pier. It’s here that you’ll also find the Oceanarium - an all-weather attraction where kids can discover mysterious marine eco-systems.

If the likes of volleyball and jet-skiing don’t tickle your fancy, you can always head into town visit the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery.
