Relocating? Why We Love Bournemouth

Relocating? Why We Love Bournemouth

Relocating can be a difficult decision to make but due to personal or job situations, it can become necessary to have to move location. Relocating impacts the whole family, and can be a complete lifestyle change for many. Hopefully if you’re in this situation you’ll have people around you that can help with the process but if you don’t, we’d like to help take away the stress or hassle of uprooting and relocating and offer peace of mind about moving to Bournemouth.

Based on the South Coast of England, we see and help many families relocate, coming from a variety of areas throughout the UK looking to move to the coast. There are many reasons why people relocate but a common one for Bournemouth is that people are looking for a better lifestyle away from the hussle and bussle of a busy inner city. Other reasons could be an older couple looking to retire, a family looking for a safer environment, a relocation for work – there are all sorts of reasons to move to Bournemouth.


From its beautiful sandy beaches to the towns and nightlife, Bournemouth has something to offer every individual and family. Bournemouth is known for its glorious beaches, that stretch from beyond Christchurch through to Sandbanks, spanning over 7 sandy miles – and beautiful all year round. The town has its landmark beach huts which add colour to the seafront adding tradition to the sights. Bournemouth also boasts Britain’s first municipal beach hut built in 1909. There are two piers in the area, Bournemouth and Boscombe pier, both available to walk along. Indulging in an ice-cream is a good choice whilst walking along the beach front and there are many ice-cream parlours available to choose from on your journey.


Not only does Bournemouth have the beaches, the town offers more than one shopping area; the main town centre as well as suburb high streets that are just as popular as the main town. Bournemouth’s thriving town centre hosts a range of British high street fashions – ever-growing to incorporate the new and upcoming trends that are constantly being introduced. If you’re looking for something a little quirky and different, the town hosts a number of boutiques, quirky gift shops and of course, surf shops. The many suburbs of the town offer a variety to suit everyone and if you’re not one for going to the main town centre, there will be another high street to suit.

Eating Out

When it comes to eating out, there’s plenty of chance for fine dining or making use of the many family restaurants, and there are hundreds of restaurants throughout Bournemouth to suit every taste bud and nationality. Whether you’re looking for a romantic meal for two, a family meal out, a take-away or a snack on-route, you won’t have to go far to find your treat.

The famous world-known Harry Ramsden’s fish and chip restaurant is one of the most famous food stops in town and is in fact the largest Harry Ramsden’s in the world. If you love your fish and chips, you’ve come to the right seaside town!


Looking for tranquility and space? Bournemouth boasts their beautiful gardens that run through the centre of the town. The gardens; Upper, Central and Lower Gardens, span for 2 miles from Bournemouth Pier through to Poole. Along with these, there are a number of other outside beauty spots to be found across the town, all great for walks or family adventures.


When it comes to entertainment, Bournemouth definitely has something for everyone. From concerts, shows, dances, cinemas, theatres, live bands, orchestras – you will not miss out on entertainment here. The town’s entertainment industry is worth billions and is one of the main attractions of the area. Of course we shouldn’t miss out the town Christmas pantomime that takes place every year which attracts all age groups.
