GARDENS OF BOURNEMOUTH

Bournemouth is a vibrant cosmopolitan town that is renowned for its wonderful coastline and traditional holiday feel. Its mild climate is perfect to enhance not only the towns own glorious gardens and parks but also for the spectacular gardens that we are including in our excursions.

The three star Suncliff Hotel is situated on East Cliff overlooking miles of golden beaches. All rooms are comfortable and have excellent facilities. This hotel has a lift and offers regular entertainment.
