The Bournemouth school is extremely lucky to benefit from its central location. Overlooking the town’s main square, it is in the heart of the town and all the great attractions of Bournemouth are within easy reach. Here are the top five things to do within 10 minutes of our Bournemouth school!
Bournemouth is famous for its gardens and we are lucky to have the Grade II listed gardens within 2 minutes of the school. The award winning gardens have colourful flower displays and include a stream, ice-cream kiosks and mini golf. In the summer what better way to relax than to listen to the music from the Pine Walk bandstand or visit the aviary or art exhibition? These gardens are like no other as they have a whole wealth of things to keep its visitors interested. Not to mention being home to number 2 on our list, The Bournemouth Eye!
Located in the Lower Gardens another of Bournemouth’s top attractions is only a 2 minute walk from the school. The Bournemouth eye is the town’s answer to the London Eye. It transports it’s passengers up in a balloon where they can see the whole area from the New Forest to the Isle of Wight. This gentle trip is the premier way to see the stunning scenery of Bournemouth and the surrounding areas.
Through the Lower Gardens and next to the pier is the Oceanirum, this attraction has sea life from all over the world from The Amazon to the Florida Keys. You can walk through the shark tunnel and enjoy seeing the sting rays and afterwards enjoy a drink in the café.
In contrast to any of the other relaxing activities why not indulge in a thrilling speed boat ride along the coast? You will get your adrenalin pumping as you race along the coastline!
Along from the pier you can hire a beach cruiser bike and take a ride along the beach front promenade. This is how the locals enjoy the 11k of award winning sandy beaches. On a clear day you can see the Isle of Wight and the nature reserve of Studland, and it gives you a strong sense of the natural beauty to be found here. What a relaxing way to enjoy a sunny afternoon?
……Of course if none of these excite you, you can always hang out at the beach!
