Bournemouth information

Bournemouth is a coastal town in the south west of England, situated in the county of Dorset. Located between Poole and Christchurch, the town is accessible via road on the A338 - also known as the Wessex Way.

Founded in 1810, Bournemouth grew with the introduction of the railway, which saw a huge surge in visitors numbers to the seaside town. As the city grew, so did the attractions; starting with a library and museum and increasing to art galleries, cinemas and other attractions.

Throughout history, Bournemouth has been known as a seaside resort. Boasting seven miles of award winning beaches, the bay of Bournemouth takes its shelter from the surrounding cliffs to create its own microclimate - ideal for holidaymakers. The beach offers a variety of amusements from a stroll along the pier through to water sports. It is even host to the annual Bournemouth air festival, which is spread over four days of flying displays, shopping and evening entertainment.

There are many attractions in the surrounding area to explore including the New Forest, a myriad of quaint coastal towns, rugged walks and breathtakingly beautiful coastal scenes.

Average winter temperatures in Bournemouth can vary from 1.2 °C at their lowest to as mild as 8.7 °C. The coldest month is usually February, whilst December sees the warmest temperatures over winter. It also has more days of air frost on average than any other month. Bournemouth winter temperatures tend to be 1 to 2 °C warmer when compared to the UK average. On average, rainfall accumulation is lower in January compared to December, and typically February has even less. December has the second highest rainfall accumulation of any month.

From March to May sunshine hours increase significantly above the UK average. Likewise temperatures increase from 11 °C to 17 °C. Compared to other months from the start of spring to the end of summer, March has a relatively high accumulation of rainfall on average. This figure drops for April, and then again for May. Similarly, March has more 'rain days' than any month until October.

Autumn months see the most rainfall in Bournemouth as collectively the average accumulation is around 267 mm.
