Bournemouth Square nestles in the middle of the Town amidst loads of shops and restaurants and close to the lovely gardens. There is always something going on in the Square all year round and the Christmas market is lovely on the run up to Christmas.

A nice pedestrian area, where you can stroll at your own pace and enjoy window-shopping, or a tasty ice cream, or sit outside a coffee-shop to enjoy your cappuccino.. During summer there are a lot of activities taking place in the square. Additional advantage, all...More
