Seaside town on the south coast of England in the county of Dorset. Expensive accommodation. Poor shopping facilities and traffic can be a problem. Beautiful long sandy beach stretches for about 7miles (11Km).

Bournemouth is a beautiful seaside city in southern England. Anyone who wishes to reside in Bournemouth should know the beach gets absolutely packed in the summer. However, it is still a great place to live in because we are surrounded by stunning gardens, nature reserves and wildlife. It is a vibrant city with lots to do but mainly to people who enjoy nature walks and a quiet life.

Bournemouth has almost 200,000 inhabitants and is on the south coast of England about 100 miles south west of London. It has a thriving busy centre and is a popular destination for tourists. The town has fine beaches, many nightclubs and a large student population.

Bournemouth is home to the most beautiful beach in England. Seven miles of smiles. Sandbanks, in Poole contains some of the most expensive real-estate in the world. In the surrounding area you will also find the New Forest and Jurassic Coastline, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the perfect setting for a Sunday stroll.

The town of Bournemouth lies at the centre of a conurbation with Poole and Christchurch. Because it is by the sea, Bournemouth offers clean beaches and opportunities for boating, skiing and other water sports. Transport links to London and the west country are excellent. Thee are also opportunities for employment with large banks and other financial institutions which are based here.
