Why not make a day of it?

Boscombe pedestrian precinct is a flourishing shopping area and is home to many large chains including Primark, WH Smith, Boots, Superdrug and Sainsburys, together with smaller independent shops and restaurants. There are two undercover Shopping centres including the beautiful Victorian Royal Arcade, and the modern Sovereign Shopping Centre which has 40 retail units.

Boscombe precinct is just half a mile away from the sea front, and has the award winning Boscombe Chine Gardens a short walk away. Here you can enjoy a round of mini golf, play on the courts, visit the Children’s Play Area and Water Feature or dine in the Clock House Cafe. However you might just enjoy taking a stroll round this little known secret Garden. The sea front and Gardens are linked by a land train which brings people to/from the precinct.

The Coastal Activity Park stretches over 1km either side of Boscombe Pier and is home to a range of in-water as well as land based activities, providing a unique new attraction for all ages and abilities offering relaxation, extreme sports and educational activities. You can enjoy a coffee overlooking the beach, fish off the pier, climb a boulder, join a volleyball game or book a pamper session in the Spa Pod, try all the FREE activities, hire equipment, courts and classrooms or just enjoy the stunning surroundings.

With 20+ different activities currently on offer there’s something for all ages and abilities. For more information go to http://coastalactivitypark.co.uk/
