Bournemouth is a popular seaside resort which caters for all types of visitors. The sea front is covered with large villas and hotels while many shops, amusement parks, night clubs and casinos can be found in the city.

Bournemouth is well known for its beautiful gardens. The city is full of many green parks and flower beds, such as Compton Acres and the Pavilion Rock Garden. It is a truly magnificent place to visit in the springtime.

The town has two notable museums. The Russell-Cotes museum which has beautiful displays of butterflies and moths, porcelain, oriental art and period rooms. The large collection of Japanese art was given to the museum by Sir Merton Russell-Cotes, a former Lord Mayor. At the Bournemouth Exhibition Centre see the huge dinosaur safari display.
