Bournemouth 5 Day Festive - Devon Towers Hotel
Bournemouth is superbly situated on the sunny south coast on top of spectacular cliffs which look down upon miles of golden sand. It is probably Britain's most international resort with many visitors from the Continent providing an interesting sprinkling of foreign tongues as one strolls through the splendid gardens or browses through the outstanding selection of shops. The town is full of flowers and there are beautifully manicured parks and gardens. The delightful 'chines', small valleys in the cliffs, offer shady groves leading to the shore. The Lower Gardens and Central Gardens in particular provide a lush green contrast to the nearby beach. There are many outstanding attractions including museums, an art gallery, two piers and a wealth of evening entertainment ranging from classical music to top name summer shows.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
