A Weekend In Bournemouth


For my 22nd birthday my boyfriend Ben, surprised me and took me to England’s most popular seaside resort, Bournemouth. I could honestly talk about my weekend away for hours (but I’m sure your not all that interested), so I’ll give you the low down and then feel free to enjoy the copious amount of photos I’ve added (please note, I went through 500 photos taken, to pick just these 23 photos!).

Being in Bournemouth bought back many memories of family holidays spent on the Jurassic coast and the beautiful sandy beaches and sparkling sea of Bournemouth reignited my love for the UKs coastline. Ben pulled off a string of surprises starting with a bit of fun at Splashdown. Soon after we headed to our next destination, Chalfield ManorChalfield Manor is a boutique hotel just 1.5 miles east of Bournemouth Town centre, close to the cliff top in Boscombe Manor and I couldn’t have stayed in a more welcoming hotel. I can’t fault the hotel, possibly one of the nicest hotels, with the friendliest staff I have ever had the pleasure of staying in! 

After checking in we found ourselves making our way to Bournemouth along the sea front from Boscombe Pier. It takes about 30 minutes to walk from one pier to the other, but I would walk it everyday if I could, the view is just beautiful. Oh and not to mention the beach huts, I want one (preferably in mint!). We ended up in the most appropriately named restaurant ‘Harry Ramsdon’s Fish And Chips. The Worlds Best Fish And Chip Shop’. And as a legitimate source, I can vouch for that! The fish and chips where the best I have ever had. Fact. 


The surprises continued the following day when Ben took me to Monkey World, which if the name didn’t suggest is a sanctuary for monkeys! If you didn’t already know I work at a zoo and I love monkeys, so it was more than appropriate and I throughly enjoyed it. We also visited Bournemouth Oceanarium during our stay, followed by a trip into the town centre just a 5 minute walk from the beach and the vibrant town centre was full of shops. Perfect for a beauty addict like myself! 


My weekend away was completed by spending my pennies in the arcade on Bournemouth Pier (and not winning much in return!) and tucking into the scrummiest Dorset honeycomb ice cream. We loved our stay so much that we stayed an extra night and I will without a doubt be visiting Bournemouth again! What more can I say, the town of Bournemouth has it all! I highly recommend if you can to visit!  I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weekend away!
