Travel Tips for Bournemouth

City by the sea

by Britannia2

"THe Dorset coast"

My first visit to Bournemouth in over 30 years and the coast line is still great to view.
There is a lower promenade at the bottom of the cliffs next to the beach and sea and paths or a cliff lift take visitors between the town and beach. It is relatively flat near the pier.
THe view here shows the view to Boscombe Pier.

"A glimpse of the past"

In 1974 when I last came here Bournemouth was an upmarket seaside resort visited by families on holiday and old ladies who came to retire here.
In 2006 it is probably the most cosmopolitan resort in the UK. Hundreds of young people in the town and packing the beach they were from all over Europe and we felt out of place. Topless bathing ( rare in England), openly gay men and drunken stag parties on a late Friday afternoon came as something of a culture shock for a middle aged couple from a small village in Yorkshire!
I thought the pier was the only thing left of Bournemouths traditional image.

"Still a well designed and modern city"

Forgetting the image the town is still well laid out and pleasant but although the park below looks nice the local radio station carried a newsitem that siad it was unsafe to walk in late at night and there was a problem with discarded syringes.
All in all - a disapointment.
