There are so many different fun places to eat and so many night clubs and pubs to go to, to enjoy yourself. The transportation is quick and efficient. You can get a bus every 5 minutes or so to anywhere. The shopping centre in town is incredible as they have so many shops to have fun with. Great environment.

Public Transport

Getting around Bournemouth is best either by bike (there are no horrific hills to worry about) or by bus. Travelling outside of Bournemouth is easy thanks to it being well-connected by public transport. There are direct trains to major cities such as London, Birmingham and Oxford. There’s also the National Express Coaches that travel to destinations all over the UK and offer great prices on tickets if you book early.

Eating Out

Shopping

There is plenty of shopping in Bournemouth, on Commercial Road and Old Christchurch Road you will find all the high street favourite chain stores. For even more shops head to the nearest big retail spot called Castlepoint Shopping Centre just outside town. If you go off the beaten track you will find a great selection of small independent shops, explore Albert Road, Yelverton Road and Burlington Arcade.

The Great Outdoors

Bournemouth is most famous for its golden sandy beaches and during the summer months, thousands of holidaymakers flock there for a day beside the seaside. As well as walks along the beach or the day spent sunning yourself, there are a bunch of activities to try. There’s surfing (they have an artificial surf reef!), paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking and you can even zip line from the pier. It’s safe to say, the beach will be one of your favourite spots whilst studying in Bournemouth.

The New Forest

In less than 20-minutes, you can be in the New Forest National Park. Known for wild ponies (who always have right of way) and fantastic walking trails that go through woods, by the sea, over heath and by rivers. There is also a great selection of small villages with traditional English pubs to try.

The Jurassic Coast

The Jurassic Coast is Dorset’s stunning and dramatic coastline famous for the hundreds of fossils that wash up every year. Make sure to take a day trip to Durdle Door in Lulworth Cove, a beautiful stone arch in the sea that’s the only UNESCO natural heritage site in the UK.

Love Bournemouth, the nights out are so good and there's something going on every day of the week. Everything is within walking distance if you're living in halls as town and the beach aren't far. It's the perfect mix of busy student nightlife with a beach if you wanted to be somewhere quieter. Bournemouth isn't massive but there are two unis which means there's definitely a studenty feel to the area and I know that a huge city would've been too overwhelming for me. We also have Bournemouth 7s and Summerball and the student union are really good. read more

There are so many restaurants...

There are so many restaurants to choose from in Bournemouth! Pubs aren't cheap but there's so many weatherspoons about so you can't go wrong. The nights out are Amazing in Bournemouth. They do so many deals for students to make your nights out cheap. Lost Gardens and Halo are great on Monday the new event Flava in revolutions on a Tuesday, varsity night at cameo on Wednesdays, Bonsai on Thursdays and then Lollipop or Cameo on Fridays so there's plenty of events on! There are some decent shops in Bournemouth town centre including topshop, zara, riverisland, miss selfridge, new look, primark, topman etc. The public transport is amazing running very frequently. read more

Not frequent busses to uni from all halls and going to Poole from Winton is an hour journey into Bournemouth and then the other way to Poole. Prices in Bournemouth are high but it's not too much. read more
