Boscombe is a vibrant area with lots to offer in terms of schools, shopping, proximity to Bournemouth’s employment opportunities and transport links. Its proximity to a surf reef, pier & beautiful sandy beaches make it a great holiday destination. The Boscombe of today is a far cry from its heyday in the late 1800s and 1900s as a seaside, spa town but you needn’t look far to find evidence of its glamorous past including spectacular Victorian and Art Deco buildings.
As much with much of this area, many years ago, Boscombe was part of the heathland that covered much of Dorset & Hampshire. It is situated between the older village of Pokesdown and Bournemouth Square. The town is situated on the top of a hill with a steep incline leading down to the beach and cliffs. From this point you can see the whole of Poole Bay stretching from Hengistbury Head in the east to Poole Harbour entrance in the west, and on to Studland and Swanage bays to the south.
One of the biggest investments was the Surf Reef, next to the pier on the east side, which creates a surfable wave (in the right conditions) and on the back of that there are many new surf shops & casual beach cafes close to the sea front.
Shopping is great in Boscombe, with the modern pedestrian Soverign Centre, a busy High street & thriving street markets. Ashley Road has an eclectic mix of shops which is a fantastic place to pick up antiques & unique furniture of all types.
One of our favorite eateries in Boscombe is on the sea front, with stunning water front views – Urban Reef is an “informal bar, café, deli & restaurant” it is open for great breakfasts, right through the day until late & is particularly popular on a sunny weekend morning!
Many other cuisines are to be found such as classic Fish & Chips, Chinese or Pizza, Indian but one of the best in our opinion is Koh Thai on Christchurch Road, Thai tapas food, perfect for an early evening light bite or a Thai feast….
