Enjoy a free day in Bournemouth. Why not take a stroll amongst the town’s many glorious gardens and parks? Starting in the Lower Gardens, which are adjacent to the sea, you can take a beautiful walk from the seafront passing the lush trees and shrubs from around the world to the Central Gardens and then if you want to, continue through to the Upper Gardens. These are the most famous in Bournemouth, retaining much of their Victorian character and are Grade II listed.
