10 Best Vrbo Holiday Homes In Bournemouth, England - Updated 2021

vrbo bournemouth uk

Bournemouth is the UK’s quintessential seaside town. The town’s timeless Victorian architecture, endless beaches, clifftops, and lush gardens make for a scenic setting for any visit. For those who want an active holiday, Bournemouth provides several options for hikes and water sports; for those looking to take it easy, they can enjoy long walks, delightful choices of restaurants, cafes and accommodation options in the town. The Bournemouth Pier is an activity center which has an obstacle course, a climbing wall and a zip line are perfect for those days when the weather just doesn’t want to cooperate. Otherwise, we recommend a walk through Bournemouth Gardens to experience the wonderful rock gardens and plant species from three different continents. The vacation rentals you can find in Bournemouth are comfortable, fully equipped and provide the feel of a seaside resort.
