Bournemouth in Spring time is simply a joy to behold.
With the days getting longer, Spring flowers in abundance and the promise of warmer weather to come, it’s really no wonder that so many people enjoy a break, to set themselves up for the year ahead.
Of course Bournemouth is renowned for its amazing and endless golden beaches, 7 miles or so in total. You can walk along the beach to your hearts content, build the sand castle of your dreams of just hire a deck chair watch the world go by.
There are some lovely historic houses to visit this spring. Kingston Lacey near Wimborne is around 10 miles away and is a beautiful 17th century house which is open to the public. There is an outstanding collection of paintings to be viewed, plus a selection of Egyptian antiquities on display. You can wander around the Japanese gardens and then into the Woods surrounding the gardens. There is also a play area for children to let off steam.
Moors Valley Country Park is another lovely place for a walk on a sunny spring day. There are amazing Adventure playgrounds for children set amongst the woods. There is also a play trail, a tree top trail and a golf course for enthusiasts. The cafe is an inviting place to refuel.
Christchurch, around a 20 minute drive away, is a small market town set around the 11th century Priory church. The quaint quay which looks out over the large natural harbour, makes it a wonderful place to explore.
