Cosmopolitan Bournemouth enjoys its reputation as a vibrant regional centre for leisure, entertainment, culture and recreation.

Just a short walk from the famous sandy beach, Bournemouth town centre has a pedestrianised high street with a mix of department stores, well known fashion brands, high street shops and independent boutiques. A canopied walkway in Westover Road known locally as ‘Bournemouth’s Bond Street’ plays host to a range of shops selling designer labels, art and jewellery. Castlepoint, one of the UK’s largest shopping parks in nearby Castle Lane West, provides an outdoor mall retail experience to suit every lifestyle and throughout Bournemouth’s suburbs, you’ll find boutiques and brasseries lining the arcades and avenues, as well as a bustling café culture.
