I was very fortunate when I visited the area that the weather was fairly warm and sunny. While my wife roamed around the large number of shops nearby, I visited the Square for a coffee and the free entertainment from the street artists present. I liked the location and wished I had something similar in my local shopping town centre

Bournemouth has a cosmopolitan vibe and it comes together in the square with entertainers and the beautiful gardens plus quality shops to visit.

Love the location! Visited here many times for a coffee break between shopping. However found my last bill a little expensive.. 4 blackcurrants with soda water a small mango juice & small cola £18.50! Come on 4 of the drinks were just fizzy water!

This is where all the buses converge and therefore it is very busy. Sometimes the streets are jammed with buses and the pavements with people trying to get on. However you are yards away from the shops, the gardens and the pedestrian area with lots of things going on. If you visit Bournemouth you will pass through here at some... More

This square seems to be the main meeting place, walked here several times. Early evening there were young lads on a skateboard display great to watch. Daytime there were musicians playing.also a lone piper playing the bagpipes great to listen to.

Even take a bus ride to Poole or the opposite direction to Boscombe and Southbourne. So much to do, so little time. Glad we... More
