SOUTHBOURNE

Location of Southbourne

In Dorset with  Bournemouth and Boscombe to its West and Christchurch to its East is Southbourne which has cliff tops to wander along and a blue flag graded beach.  It was originally known as Stourfield but was changed to Southbourne to reflect the area that was near the coast with West Southbourne, Tuckton and Wick further inland.

Southbourne History

Thomas Compton bought a piggery farm where Southbourne high street now is with the foresight of turning Southbourne into a health resort in competition with the properous health resort of Bournemouth.  

Southbourne Attractions

Southbourne's main attraction is its sandy beach, which is quieter and less crowded than the Bournemouth beaches.  There is a train that runs along the clifftop road between Bournemouth and Hengistbury Head.

Southbourne has experienced a revival and has many independent pubs, restaurants, shops and cafes. It has been visited a number of times by Kirsty and Phil from Location, Location, Location which televised the Knitting cafe and the Sweeney Todd styled Barber Shop. There is also locally made beer and 'Conker' Gin made locally in Southbourne.

The beach in the summer and in the winter a bracing stroll along the cliff top to Urban Beach on the west side of Southbourne or to Bistro on the Beach to the east of Southbourne.

Seafield Gardens has tennis courts, bowling club or gardens to take a peaceful stroll around.
