Bournemouth has plenty of options for social days and evenings out including: bowling, cinemas, clubs, restaurants, and beaches (just to name a few) but those are just the things on offer in the centre of town. In fact, Bournemouth is just a small part of the County of Dorset, and Dorset has many historic landmarks, beautiful coasts, and areas of natural beauty that can be explored. In addition, the variety of adrenaline-fuelled activity days on offer from local companies really does demonstrate how Bournemouth and Dorset whole-heartedly cater to all.
Being situated on the Jurassic Coast is a great excuse to get out-and-about for a bit of exploring, and what better way to start than by taking a walk down to the stony beaches of Hengistbury Head. The visitor centre of this nature reserve is open all year from 10am and provides more information on the international importance of the local archaeology and geology. If you want to go a bit further along the Jurassic Coast, the naturally sculpted rocks of Lulworth Cove can be reached, by car, within an hour. With a particularly breath-taking view of the sunset this is the perfect spot for any keen photographers to visit.
You should definitely take advantage of living in such a beautiful area and get out and explore!
