Once you reach the end, you can relax at the cafe. There’s even more fun for young ones at the children’s amusements.

    It's fine, just a fairly average pier which seems to feel it can charge for not much. Fine if you want to do the zip wire or other activities, but there is not much else on it.  more »

  • One of the great places to relax and spend time alone. Prices to get in just 1.20 which is not bad. Great views as well.
  • Indoor climbing center ok for kids plus has the zip wire over the sea. It has a few rides for kids as well and a nice cafe but nothing special
  • Lovely location. Food in the bar was superb and the staff really friendly.
  • In the summer you have to pay to enter pier but winter is usually free. Zip wire is really good. Can often see surfers and jet skiers which is great.
  • Great beach, but don't let the golden soft sand fool you as it's full of broken glass. The council should provide more bins on the beach so people can disguard their bottles and rubbish.

For a relaxing experience near Bournemouth's major attractions, book your rooms at a "country house" hotel in the very heart of this picturesque coastal town.
