Coach holidays with Alfa Travel

Bournemouth

Resort - Bournemouth

Overview

Bournemouth is superbly situated on the sunny South coast on top of spectacular cliffs which look down upon miles of golden sand. It is probably Britain's most international resort. Stroll through the splendid gardens or browse through the remarkable selection of shops. The town is full of flowers and there are beautifully manicured parks and gardens. The delightful "chines", small valleys in the cliffs, offer shady groves leading to the shore. The Lower Gardens and Central Gardens in particular provide a lush green contrast to the nearby beach. There are many outstanding attractions including museums, an art gallery, two piers and a wealth of evening entertainment ranging from classical music to top name summer shows.
