Known as one of the most stunning coastal towns in the south of England, Bournemouth is famous for its seven‑mile stretch of award‑winning sandy beaches.
Offering you the option of a peaceful life by the sea or a lively and dynamic lifestyle, Bournemouth has the perfect blend of both. You’ll find picturesque parks, countryside, and outdoor spaces right on your doorstep, including ten stunning nature reserves.
Let’s take a look at the best student spots in and around Bournemouth.
If you want a break from the hustle and bustle of town, the Gardens are the perfect place to sit, relax, and watch the world go by with a coffee or picnic with friends.
Whatever the weather or time of the year, Bournemouth beach is the ideal location for strolling along the pier, relaxing with ice cream or even admiring miles of breath‑taking coastline.
If you’re living with us at Cranborne, Chesil, or Lyme Regis House, you’re never more than a 20‑minute walk away from the beach.
Go Ape ‑ Moors Valley
There's a course to suit all thrill and skill levels with over five adventure courses available, so grab your flatmates and explore the forest canopy via the treetop rope course.
Russell‑Cotes Art Gallery and Museum
The house was previously home to two Victorian collectors and travel enthusiasts and named one of England's most fascinating historic houses. The museum has regular exhibitions, panoramic views of the Bournemouth coast, and even a Japanese garden to explore.
Brave the Screamer with its sheer vertical drop, plunge into darkness on the Black Thunder, or if that sounds too wild, go with the flow on the Mississippi Drifter. Make sure to pre‑book your tickets online through the Splashdown website, as walk‑in slots are unavailable.
With fun DJ nights, themed weekly events, and an extensive tropical cocktail menu, you’re sure to have a great time at Aruba!
