31 May 2018

Bournemouth is one of the top destinations for coach holidays in the UK, we take thousands of people to this relaxing, beautiful part of England every year – it was our 4th most visited destination last year – so in this blog, we thought we’d share exactly why it is such a great place to visit, and the types of things you might do on a coach holiday.


This is an obvious one, but one of the biggest attractions for Bournemouth is the wonderful miles of beach it has to offer – 7 miles to be precise. They’re award winning beaches with 4 Blue Flag awards being given to Alum Chine, Durley Chine, Fisherman’s Walk and Southbourne, plus Bournemouth and Boscombe beaches have won at the Seaside Awards, part of the Keep Britain Tidy initiative!

The golden sands and lush turquoise seas, colourful beach huts and family friendly areas are what make these some of the best beaches in Britain.
