Bournemouth to Alum Chine & Poole via Branksome, Canford Cliffs, Compton Acres, Lilliput & Park Gates

The scenic way between Poole and Bournemouth with glorious seaside views en route.

Places to visit & things to do along the way

Bournemouth is the largest resort in Dorset and boasts seven miles of sandy beaches, beautiful parks and gardens, as well as a vast array of shops, restaurants and holiday accommodation to suit all budgets.

You’re sure to find plenty of things to do while exploring the town, with lots of attractions, activities, entertainment and adventure to keep all ages entertained.

With great shopping and eating out experiences as well as lots of events all year round, there really is something for everyone.

Just outside Bournemouth to the west is Westbourne, a fascinating coastal village that is definitely worth exploring.

With a thriving community spirit, Westbourne’s unique appeal has attracted an ever growing and varied number of cosmopolitan restaurants, bars, delicatessens, off-licences, cafés, food stores and independent shops.

A chine is a steep dry river valley and Alum Chine is the largest of four Chines within Bournemouth.

It offers shaded paths; the popular Treasure Island themed children’s play area (author Robert Louis Stephenson lived close by), tropical garden on the cliff face and bowls, catering and toilet facilities within the nearby clifftop Argyll Gardens.

Delight in the relaxed atmosphere of the wooded chine and magnificent sea views. If you prefer a quiet moment, the tropical gardens, which have their origins in the 1920s, provide an ideal area for contemplation.

With the Blue Flag award winning beach down below, the gardens have become renowned for their award-winning facilities, striking landscape design and stunning views.

Canford Cliffs is a natural and tranquil area, situated between Shore Road and Branksome Chine beaches.

It has Blue Flag status, with sandy cliffs and picturesque wooden huts, making Canford Cliffs a popular choice for locals. It is within walking distance of Canford Cliffs village, which offers a range of restaurants and local shops.

Compton Acres is recognised as one of the most important ornamental gardens in England.

Constructed in 1920 by Mr Thomas Simpson, today, Compton Acres is still acknowledged as one of the finest privately owned gardens in England. Enjoy over 10 acres of horticultural heaven, relax in our charming Café & Tea Rooms, browse the treasures in our Gifted Moment store or delve into the exciting world of plants within our Plant Centre.

Poole

Poole is a bustling tourist resort in the east of Dorset and is well known for Europe’s largest natural harbour, award winning blue flag beaches including the world famous Sandbanks Beach, a bustling quayside and a beautiful historic old town.

Nestled between Bournemouth, the Isle of Purbeck and the Jurassic Coast, Poole is a fantastic base for exploring the rest of Dorset.
