After a gruelling 5.5 hour journey (never drive out the city on Easter weekend), we arrived in Bournemouth at 3.30pm. A quick check in and freshen up time later, we headed to the beach front to enjoy a lovely stroll across the beach and stop somewhere for a beverage.
The beach in Bournemouth is lovely! Probably one of the best I’ve seen in England. The tide was out and its safe to say it was very chilly. I was right on bringing a coat.
We had a lovely walk along the beach, taking some creative pictures and selfies along the way of course..
The we headed back to get our dancing shoes on for a night on the town. We stayed at Park Central hotel. This is right by the beach, the rooms are very clean although slightly small, yet still big enough for two to get ready in and the bathroom has great lighting for taking selfies. Ha.
At 8 we headed to a restaurant by the pier called ‘Aruba’. Its a very popular restaurant in Bournemouth, the food is lovely, affordable, and later on in the evening it turns into a club. Did i mention it was BOGOF on cocktails until midnight? This went down very well with us..
After a lovely dinner, we headed around the corner to the Lost Paradise. The music was great; a mix of cheese and pop songs, great for us to bust some embarrassing moves on the dance floor and have a good laugh with each other.
We headed back to London early the next day, ready for my bottomless brunch!
It took 2.5 hours for us to get home, what a difference! I’d definitely recommend a night in Bournemouth if you’re looking to head somewhere new, beach, restaurants and good nightlife, everything you need for a fun night away.
