Bournemouth named 'Best seaside town in UK'

When it comes to location, we know we have it pretty good. Renowned for its Blue Flag award-winning beaches, lifestyle and leisure activities and all-year round festivals and culture, Bournemouth remains a popular hotbed when it comes to coastal living.

The prestigious 2017 British Travel Awards (BTAs) have named Bournemouth as the winner of the ‘Best seaside town in the UK’, the third time Bournemouth has successfully beaten off competition from Brighton and Bude to win the top spot.

From its history as a popular spa resort in the Victorian era, Bournemouth continues to impress not only tourists but locals too. With regeneration projects taking place over a number of years and visitors reaching 66.9 million each year, the town has come into its own as cosmopolitan centre for arts, digital and media, and lifestyle and is a hub for those searching for the cooler side of life.

When it comes to deciding on a University, location can play a huge part in that decision. While the academic student experience remains integral to what Bournemouth’s Higher Education institutions provide, it’s also the friendships and memories students make, and where better to do that than in a place with sun, sea and sand. Bournemouth’s the perfect home away from home.
