Fear not, for the Russell-Cotes Museum, nestled conveniently by the beach, awaits. And guess what? It’s only £4.50 for students! So grab your student ID and your pals, and let’s dive into some captivating art by the sea.

But wait, there’s more. Ever thought tennis was out of reach due to its costs? Think again. Every Saturday at Knyveton Gardens, you can partake in free weekly coach-led sessions, perfect for families and individuals alike. It’s an opportunity not to be missed, so sign up today!

And speaking of free delights, have you heard of the GIANT Gallery? Tucked away in Bobby’s shopping center, it’s a second-floor haven of artistic wonder, with monthly exhibitions that won’t cost you a penny.

Now, onto sustenance. If you’re a morning coffee enthusiast but dread the prices at coffee shops, here’s a game-changer: head to Mary Shelley or Moon Wetherspoon pubs, where you can enjoy unlimited coffee for just £1.50.

Another fantastic option is renting a Beryl scooter for a delightful ride from Bournemouth Pier to Boscombe Pier. Picture it: the wind tousling your hair, the rhythmic sounds of the sea accompanying you, and breathtaking views in every direction. And the best part? This experience will only set you back around 3-4 pounds. What a steal!
