Discover Bournemouth
  • Description
  • Related

Bournemouth is an excellent holiday location and a good base from which to explore the surrounding area. The town itself has a wonderful safe sandy beach, beautiful gardens, tree-lined roads and a varied night life which caters for all ages.

The town, with its Victorian heritage, is blessed with several beautiful churches and grand buildings, many of which have an interesting history and are well worth a visit. This guide takes you around the heart of Bournemouth with notes on points of interest and then to several locations towards the outskirts of the town which are of particular historical significance.

Within easy reach of Bournemouth are many places of exceptional natural beauty and with a history reaching back to early times. Included are those which make for an interesting, leisurely, pleasant and inexpensive day out, although you may find that you require more than a single visit to see all the attractions in that region.

In this volume in Halsgrove’s colourful Discover series, Rodney Cooper explores the highways and byways of the town and its environs to produce a fascinating picture and indispensable guide to one of the most popular locations in the British Isles.

Rodney Cooper was born in 1940 and after graduating went teaching in Kenya at the time of the country’s independence. On returning to England he continued his studies and gained a doctorate following research in cryogenics. After a spell in industry he returned to teaching, including in Hong Kong where Rodney taught first at a Polytechnic and then started a teacher training college.

Following early retirement he set up a company introducing overseas students to U.K. colleges and universities. Rodney and his wife retired to Bournemouth in 2005 and both are Bournemouth Councillors.
