Discover Bournemouth
Discover Bournemouth

Bournemouth is an excellent holiday location and a good base from which to explore the surrounding area. The town itself has a wonderful safe sandy beach, beautiful gardens, tree-lined roads and a varied night life which caters for all ages.
The town, with its Victorian heritage, is blessed with several beautiful churches and grand buildings, many of which have an interesting history and are well worth a visit. This guide takes you around the heart of Bournemouth with notes on points of interest and then to several locations towards the outskirts of the town which are of particular historical significance.

Within easy reach of Bournemouth are many places of exceptional natural beauty and with a history reaching back to early times. Included are those which make for an interesting, leisurely, pleasant and inexpensive day out, although you may find that you require more than a single visit to see all the attractions in that region.

In this volume in Halsgrove's colourful Discover series, Rodney Cooper explores the highways and byways of the town and its environs to produce a fascinating picture and indispensable guide to one of the most popular locations in the British Isles.

Bournemouth Then & Now (Then & Now (History Press))
Bournemouth Then & Now (Then & Now (History Press))

This fascinating book explores the transformations that have seen Bournemouth develop from a small seaside town into a major South Coast resort and bustling centre of commerce. Beautiful archive images are skilfully contrasted with modern photographs taken from the same vantage point today, and show how Bournemouth has changed - as well as the familiar landmarks that have remained. From the gardens as they originally appeared, freshly laid out with a large fountain where the balloon now stands, to the East Cliff Lift, the Cloisters, the model boats once sailed at Children's Corner and the peaceful surroundings of the 'Invalids Walk', Bournemouth Then & Now will rekindle fond memories for many people, and will delight residents and visitors alike.
