Information


Description:


Affectionately termed ‘Bos Vegas’, Boscombe is only a short drive from Bournemouth Town Centre and next to Pokesdown.

 

Home to the well advertised artificial reef, 220m offshore, Europe’s first, the seafront area is undergoing a redevelopment, with the renovated Overstrand Building catering to year round water sports, with public facilities such as changing rooms, warm showers, toilets, it also houses Sorted Surf Shop and School and Urban Ref Restaurant. The Surf Pods (21st century Beach Huts), were designed by Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway.

 

The town centre has a quirky mixture of shopping opportunities; the Sovereign Shopping Centre has shops such as Boots, Claire’s Accessories and Game www.sovereignshoppingcentre.co.uk, independent shops, a Market in the pedestrian area and a plethora of coffee shops to choose from to relax in after your shopping.
