12 cool things to do in Bournemouth, England
I recently went to Bournemouth, England on a 3-day microgap in collaboration with Visit England.
Bournemouth is somewhere we used to come often when I was little, so it was great to be able to explore the area again with Mum as an adult! See my full blog post about our weekend away here.
We had such a great time that I want to make sure you have as much fun in Bournemouth as I did. And so…
Here are 12 fun things to do in Bournemouth, England…
1. Stay in Bournemouth Beach Lodges
A stunning, dreamy summer escape with views of the beach and the sound of the waves as you drink your morning coffee. Pure bliss. See their website to book your stay here.
2. Mighty Claws Mini Golf
Said to be one of the best mini golf courses ever, get up and close with the dinosaurs on the Jurassic Coast while having fun with friends at the same time! For more information, click here.
3. Hire bikes from Front Bike Hire
Located near the pier, Front Bike Hire have a variety of bikes at great rates, and will even advise on good places to cycle too in and around Bournemouth!

11. Cycle to Hengistbury Head
Having hired your bikes from Front, make a day of it and cycle the coastal path round to Hengistbury Head.
12. Do a beach clean
Something so important that is often overlooked when we go away on holiday, but we’ve only got one planet so it’s time to make it a priority. Check out the work that ‘Leave only footprints’ do here and get involved.
