If you walk along the seafront from Boscum to Bournemouth, it's quite a bracing walk. There’s many beach huts along the way with little porches & coloured doors. You can rent these for a day & includes a kitchen area & four deck chairs. If you choose to walk along the beach, it can be quite tiring. If so, you can catch a little blue land train with flashing light which goes up & down the promenade which is about 7 mile's long (the seafront; not the train!). I think its £1.60 for an adult & £1 for children, wheelchairs are accepted on board. There's side flaps to stop any rain getting in.
On very windy days the sand swirl's up off the beach into a spiral, there's also impressive cliff's. The wind brings out the surfer’s who do impressive hand stands, & get very wet; also the crazies come out & have a paddle in freezing temperature’s in their swim suit's!
There's a hotel at the top with a cable car which goes up & down the cliff, or a long flight of stairs. There's public toilet’s along the way including among other thing's:
A Harry Ramdens takeaway
A sheltered terrace
It take's me about half an hour to walk from Boscum to Bournemouth, you can also cycle along as well through there's restrictions during the summer months. In summer people have barbecues on the beach, especially when they have the firework displays. All through August every Friday 23rd July to 27th August, Fireworks are released from Bournemouth & Boscum pier which is quite stunning. Ocean FM usually plays in the square with a chance to win a car, or what ever banger's on offer that year.
A chine is basically a ravine that leads down to the seafront. Alum chine can be found by going to bournemouth pier and walking right (west on the map) about three quartersr of a mile. It is signposted. Once you found it just walk up it, although to really enjoy it you must walk down it to the beach. This way though ,the entrance is very hard to find. It's off a road called Alumhurst Rd. Turn left down the road with a red letterbox at the end. I think it's Warren road. Go during the day for beautiful walk. Go at night for a truly ominous and unnerving journey to the beach. It's like your being walked down to the centre of the earth but once you get to the end of the walk you are so relieved because the sea is in front of you. Robert Louis Stevenson's house was there before it was bombed. The very house in which he wrote Jekyll and Hyde whilst dying of T.B
found this outside Southampton, its called Witleys and its not to small and not to big .
