Bournemouth offers visitors a fabulous day out for shopping. Most of the town centre is pedestrianised with shops, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, cafes and coffee shops set against the backdrop of the town’s gardens.
Westover Road features designer names and bespoke art galleries and jewelers, the elegant Victorian Arcade offers boutique shops, and the main shopping pedestrianised streets feature many High Street name, plus three department stores, Beales, Debenhams and House of Fraser.
The coastal village of Westbourne is perfect for stylish gowns and evening wear, or for gourmet cafes and restaurants, while Southbourne to the East has many delightful delis and bistros offering the best local Dorset produce.
Boscombe bustles with an open air market on Thursdays and Saturdays, and just along the Christchurch Road is Pokesdown, great for antique shops, vintage clothing stores and quirky cafes.
Castlepoint is one of the UK’s largest shopping parks, just three miles from the centre with free parking. Shopmobility units are available at Sovereign Centre, Boscombe, and Castlepoint, Castle Lane, for visitors with limited mobility.
