Cheap flights to Bournemouth
Waters that look as if they belong in the Med, never-ending swathes of sandy beaches and castles that have been standing for over a thousand years. Bournemouth is a British resort with bags of class. It’s no wonder Bournemouth is one of the UK’s favourite holiday resorts.
On top of swathes of perfect, golden sand, this town enjoys some of the country’s warmest and driest weather. Add to that some of its liveliest nightlife, a huge array of accommodation options and access to some truly stunning countryside and you have a recipe for a perfect British getaway.
Check out the Russell-Cotes Museum and Art Gallery for its eclectic collection of artworks by the likes of Landseer and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and Victoriana gathered from around the world.

Take a trip on the Sandbanks Ferry (sandbanksferry.co.uk) to nearby Corfe Castle, whose ancient ruins loom out of the mist and offer fabulous views across the surrounding countryside (nationaltrust.org.uk/corfe-castle).
