Bournemouth on a Budget

Bournemouth Beach & Pier

Bournemouth Beach & Pier

Bournemouth’s seven premier sandy beaches and award-winning gardens are open to all, free of charge all year round! The resort offers a wealth of spectacular parks and coastal walking opportunities plus best bathing and watersports beaches, making it a budget holiday choice all year round. Choose from a variety of cheap accommodation options including low cost surfer hostels, caravan and camping parks, cheap quality B&Bs and off peak bargains in Bournemouth’s many seaside hotels.

Once you’ve chosen a budget friendly Bournemouth hotel, apartment or B&B, you can keep the holiday cheap by visiting only Bournemouth’s free attractions. There are enough to fill a fortnight, and they include the Pine Walk in Bournemouth’s Lower Gardens, leading down to the beach, and the Bournemouth Air Festival which is the UK’s largest free aviation festival, and brings in crowds of up to four million people with air displays and live entertainment.

The Bournemouth Cycling Centre includes a 250m outdoor track, and for kids there are excellent play facilities at Bournemouth’s Central Gardens. Teenagers can visit Slades Farm with its skate and BMX park, and the whole family will love Bournemouth Carnival, taking place in August and featuring everything from parades to duck racing and sandcastle-building contents.
