When my parents came to visit England in early November I really scratched my head on building a fun week-long itinerary for them. You may recall I put together an extensive London guide but seeing as my parents have been to the UK capital at least half a dozen times there were too many new things for them so I planned a journey to the South coast – a weekend in Bournemouth with a big bike trip in the New Forest. The New Forest will certainly get it’s own post but today I wanted to show you a bit of this seaside down, known for it’s miles of beaches and Victorian architecture.
When you Google the city one of two things will come up – the pier with the Ferris Wheel or the rainbow beach huts that stretch down Southbourne Beach. Well during our time, we saw both of them but I was definitely drawn to the huts. According to the website there are over two hundred beach huts available for rental – whether daily, weekly, seasonally, or annually but it was the 70+ rainbow hue ones that drew my eye. My Dad joked that it looked like they went to the paint store, bought a can of each color, and went to town and I could not help but agree – however, it makes for a stunning backdrop. Take a look at the beautiful Bournemouth Beach:
Doesn’t this look like a place you would want to visit?
