shame it was raining

Second visit in two years but seemed a little bit low key as no bandstand and the rain did not help. May be worth visiting in December, nearer Xmas. Stalls / cabins good with... read more

Second visit in two years but seemed a little bit low key as no bandstand and the rain did not help. May be worth visiting in December, nearer Xmas. Stalls / cabins good with plenty of variety.

Busy busy place, the central hub of Bournemouth. Great meeting place, plenty going on, loads of people passing through so great for a people watch. Various entertainment and stalls spring up during a week so well worth a visit

I have been returning to Bournemouth on holiday since I was a child, a time that is further back than I would like it to be! The centre of Bournemouth is pedestrianised and the gardens are a lovely place to be at any time of the year. To be sat outside a cafe in the centre in summer can be... More

I literally cant just walk through the square, there's always something going on. Last time there was a young dance troop getting their groove on. Theres plenty of seating, with a cafe for drinks.

The place to be if you want to relax and have a coffee and watch whats going on around you. Always something going on (Big Halloween bar this time) with entertainers for all ages. Ideal for all families and friends. Extremely recommended.

A lovely space filled with lots of stuff going on. The always present (temporary) themed bar is reasonably priced and quite nice. The mix of stuff happening varies and sometimes there is a good selection of entertainment. However be careful as the white paving is very slippery when it is wet.
