LOCAL NEWS: Bournemouth Named Best Seaside Town


Bournemouth has been announced as the winner of the Best UK Seaside Town in the 2019 British Travel Awards.

Bournemouth’s seven-mile stretch of idyllic coastline and Blue Flag beaches offer a wide range of water sports; you can walk, cycle, or run along the seafront or through the Victorian Gardens, and many more activities.

Meanwhile indoor activities are also plentiful in and around Bournemouth – museums, cinemas, theatres, bars, coffee shops and restaurants.

Chris Saunders, Acting Service Director, Culture & Destination at BCP Council said: “We are delighted that Bournemouth has been voted the best UK Seaside Town at the British Travel Awards for the second time, particularly as this is a vote of confidence from the tens of thousands of visitors who come to our town throughout the year.

“It is fantastic that the huge amount of work done by everyone in the travel, tourism and leisure sectors in Bournemouth is being recognised in this way particularly as we are currently in the middle of the annual Christmas Tree Wonderland festival.”

British Travel Awards’ chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “Competition was particularly strong this year but ultimately it is the travelling public who decide the winners by voting for the travel companies they consider the best in the business. 

“The British Travel Awards is the largest awards programme in the UK and to win is truly an accolade.”
