    Find Family Days Out In Bournemouth

    Seven miles beaches set within a vibrant seaside resort provides lots of things to do in Bournemouth.

    Pack your bucket and spade and enjoy the wide expanse of sand, which is ideal for beach games, sunbathing and watching the world go by. If rain stops play come face to face with marine life from around the world at the Oceanarium, where you can spot clownfish in the reef, guess the age of the sea turtles and see sharks swimming above your head.

    Get above the clouds on the Bournemouth Eye that’ll take you 500ft in the air and deliver stunning panoramic views of the English Channel up to 20 miles beyond. If you’re a fan of heights visit Rock Reef when you’re back on the ground, which has a range of aerial challenges from drop slides to a leap of faith!

    Get competitive on Bournemouth family days out! Enjoy a game of Laser Tag; pick your teams and may the best person win! Alternatively Sandbanks Crazy Golf is just three miles outside of town and has 18 challenging holes to entertain and frustrate all ages.

    There’s lots of indoor fun to be had too. Splashdown is an indoor pool four miles outside of the centre that has 12 fast and furious flumes, along with a lazy river ride for a bit of relaxation, or there’s the Bowlplex Tower Park with its dedicated disco evenings!
