Blissful Bournemouth

Next up on our whirlwind tour of the South of England is the seaside town of Bournemouth.

Founded in 1810 by Lewis Tregonwell, the area was marketed as a health resort and the town received a boost when it appeared in Augustus Granville’s 1841 book, The Spas of England.

The first mention of Bournemouth comes in the Christchurch cartulary of 1406, where a monk describes how a large fish (“uni magno piscis”), 18 feet (5.5 metres) long, was washed up at “La Bournemothe” in October of that year.

But enough of regurgitating Wikipedia – here’s some sumptuous beach huts to enjoy!
