Westbourne, located to the west of Bournemouth Town Centre on route to Poole is a well-established, thriving shopping area for local residents and tourists. The large selection of boutique, individual shops gives Westbourne a distinct flavour combined with a friendly atmosphere and plenty of places to eat, drink and relax. Westbourne is a 15 minute walk from Bournemouth town centre via The Triangle. The Victorian covered arcade links Poole Road and Seamoor Road with a variety of independent shops and places to eat. The Arcade is open all year.
Westbourne is a stunning Victorian suburb of Bournemouth which offers a unique shopping experience for customers who are disillusioned by carbon copy high streets and boasts a thriving hub of mainly independent, individual and quirky shops, bars & restaurants, and many other businesses. Known locally as an urban village, Westbourne is located less than a mile from the 7 mile stretch of award winning beaches which go from Hengistbury Head to Sandbanks in Poole.
A leisurely walk from Westbourne through the beautiful Alum Chine will bring you out at Alum Chine Beach which has amazing views out over the Solent and across to the Purbecks. It is one of four Bournemouth beaches that holds a Blue Flag Award, an international award given to beaches that are exceptionally clean and environmentally friendly
