Boscombe has been a popular seaside resort since Victorian times. Located just two miles from the centre of Bournemouth, it has had a pier since 1889 and a pleasant, sandy beach, as well as the pretty Boscombe Cliff Gardens. The Royal Arcade, which dates back to the Victorian era is known for its independent shops. Nearby Bournemouth has a long level promenade backed by rugged cliffs and over 2000 acres of parks and beautiful gardens.
With excellent shops and varied entertainment, Bournemouth is one of England’s finest holiday resorts.
Following good feedback from last year’s tour, we will be returning to the Chine Hotel close to the promenade and Boscombe Pier. This traditional Victorian hotel is just a short distance from the beach. The hotel is surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens and there are lovely sea views from the restaurant.
The hotel has a lift and all the comfortable bedrooms are en-suite and have a TV, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities. Bedrooms with sea or garden views are available on request and at a supplement.
The hotel also has excellent leisure facilities with two swimming pools, a sauna and a Jacuzzi.
