Hi, I am due to visit bournemouth in a couple of weeks for a hen do weekend. I am trying to plan where to go on a Friday night. Ideally we would like to visit a few bars and then move on to a club. Can anyone recommend anywhere which are all in close proximity of one another?
Where can I buy a uv sun tent in Weymouth?
There used to be an American themed one with a jukebox but I dunno if that exists anymore. Can you recommend a decent cafe that isn't too expensive? Many thanks.
In June we plan to take the Poole-Cherbourg 9 am ferry as foot passengers with luggage (renting a car in Cherbourg). Is there a hotel with reliable transportation to the ferry terminal? Any other suggestions?
does any one know how to get from skjolden ,norway to the flam railway ,norway on
I sell scenic photos at our local farmers market of trips I've taken around the world. Here's the plan for April 2013: Ma and I will stay 1 night at Thornbury Castle near Bristol and we wanted to take the train to Wareham & then a bus to visit Corfe for 2 nights, take the steam train to Swanage etc. After our 2 nights, we planned to take the bus back to Wareham & a then the train back to London via Farnham to make a quick visit to Waverley Abbey on the way (yup, we know it's rushed, we're ok with that). Here's the problem: I'm having difficulty getting accomodation for Corfe and it seems the 3 places I've looked at (Morton's & Norden & Ammonite) all want a non-refundable deposit (Morton's doesn't really ask for it on the website but their rates are higher). I like Norden's, but they are farther out than the other 2 and since we're on foot it makes getting to the hillside to take morning shots that much more of a hassle. But still, I might persist and do it anyway, if I can get a room, and if I'm convinced it's worthwhile. So, should I keep persisting and somehow try to take my photos or should I go somewhere else altogether? I'm looking for sugggestions. Should I stay or should I go? I need to know if Corfe photos might be sellable to my market patrons or is there something better to shoot in the region between Thornbury & London (we'll already have visited Stonehenge, Glastonbury, and Bath). My patrons like old castles, evocative landscapes, etc. Corfe seemed ideal, if I can get some mist in the shot. It's the lodging that seems to be the main problem.
Planning on a weekend break with friends and hoping to avoid Supermarkets for groceries (if possible).
Can anyone suggest some good farm shops or retailers of local fresh produce (Fruit/veg/dairy) near the area of Whitcombe.
Here is an unusual request and a chance to boast about your own town. I want to move away from London to the south east coast but not being familiar with the area I have no idea where to start looking. My ambition is to find a flat with a sea view anywhere along the coast from Poole to Eastbourne. I want to move somewhere near good amenities but also where there is a thriving local community.
I wonder if you kind people can help me, especially anyone who lives in and around Bournemouth. I know this is for people looking to holiday in Bournemouth but I would like some help anyway, thanks.
I have put my name down on a council house bidding list and they have sent me a form. What I would like to know is what area's should I avoid in Bournemouth, and what area's should I apply for? i don't want to move into the Dorset equivalent of TombStone or dodge City. Please can you advise me?
The list I have been given is:
Bear Cross or Bearwood
Central (bit iffy about this)
East, West and High Howe
Look forward to your replies :)
I will be travelling to various places in the north and central England in March and my final trip will be from Wigan in Lancashire to Verwood in Dorset. I assume I will need to travel via London to get to Dorset. Can anyone advise whether it will be best to take a bus or train, and what bus/train services I should research. Many thanks.
I am going to Bournemouth for New Years. I live in California. What kind of winter clothes and shoes should I bring? The coldest it gets here is around 13c. I don't have a lot of really warm clothes. Need to go shopping before my trip but don't know what to buy. PLEASE HELP! Haha.
I have to go to a conference in Bournemouth in April. Looks like I'll have to fly to Southampton and rent a car to get there.
I may want to avoid the conference hotels and stay somewhere more relaxed - maybe an upmarket B&B/guesthouse and maybe even not in the town, but close by.
Any ideas out there?
2 mature ladies 55 and 40 mid week break looking for info on nice restuarants/evening entertainment, going in June this year and advise please...
I´m going to Bournemouth on June in order to take a course. I´ll have 3 weekends free and I´d like to go to different places.
As I won’t have much time, I must take this trip to the hilt.
I´m up to go anywhere in UK and also to a different countries.
Do you guys have any suggestion?
I'm organising my friends Hen night and would be interested to know if there are any Karaoke bars where we can start the evening off?? Also rather than sitting down to eat in a resturant we would like to just sit on the beach eating fish and chips and chill, is there any where that can be recomended??
Many thanks for any replys.
I have finally after years of persuading ;-) managed to get my husband to agree to visit Monkey World with me!!!!!
I am looking for a nice hotel/guest house even self catering cottage in the area for a long weekend I love the idea of the Boathouse rooms at the Priory Hotel but £400 pn is slightly excessive....
Any suggestions welcome! :-)
I am arranging my friend's hen do in late July. We are coming down to bournemouth for a spa break, but I would like to give the girls the option of a night out clubbing too.
Can someone please recommend a nice nightclub isn't too tacky, but still a laugh. Basically, not the typical hen do club! lol!
Thanks in advance x
I've booked the day return ferry from Weymouth to Guernsey, but the boat arrives back at Weymouth at 23:59. My hotel is not all that far away, on the Esplanade near the King's statue. Is it safe for a single woman to walk to the hotel around midnight?
Thanks for your help.
Are there any reasonably priced ferries to get to Brownsea Island? We are not looking for an excursion, just a straight forward bus/ferry. So far I have seen prices for £8.50 per person one way. This seems extremely expensive considering we are a family of 5 (include 3 teenagers). Then, of course, we will have to pay to enter the island as it belongs to National Trust.
There must be a bus-type ferry to this island, anyone know?
I will be visiting Dorset this May, staying in Shaftesbury. I would prefer to avoid the Bournemouth/Poole urban area, but I am interested in visiting Christchurch, mainly for the Priory. I don't need directions as I have maps, but can anyone give me a sense of just what I would be getting into in terms of traffic, roads, etc. It seems possible to skirt Bournemouth, but just how congested is the area? Finally, the church aside, is the town itself worth the trouble? Thanks.
Can anyone recommend a hotel or b&b for a cheap overnight stay - needs to be as near to the airport as possible to catch early morning flight.
Hi, I'll be in Bournemouth and would like to take a picturesque walk along the Jurassic coast. How far is it from Bournemouth and how easy is it to get to? I'll be using public transport. I'm not too fit so I'm not looking for a lot of extreem ups and downs. Any suggestions for walking ( where to start, stop, and so on ), please?
Thanks in advance.
What are the various ages? 18 - 20 20 -30 35 - 45?
