Travel Diary: Bournemouth and Poole on England’s south coast

Call Me Katie - Bournemouth - Pier

I can never decide if I prefer city breaks or seaside escapes, so I always try to combine both, and Bournemouth was great for the indecisive side of me.

J and I went to Bournemouth for a long weekend late in the spring when the weather was still fluctuating, so some days were warm and some were chilly with wind – but sadly it wasn’t quite warm enough to go in the water on any of the days we were in town! However, that didn’t matter because we got to see so many rainbow-coloured beach huts, which I’ve come to associate with British seaside towns.

Speaking of which, when you’re by the British seaside fish and chips is an essential. We went to Chez Fred because their fish is sustainable and responsibly caught, and they also have a cute inside dining area. (If we lived nearby we probably would have got a takeaway to enjoy with catch up TV!)

The next day we went to Cafe Boscanova for breakfast, which serves one of the most delicious breakfasts I’ve ever enjoyed. That said, I’d also ordered a vegan breakfast topped with guacamole and amazing fried mushrooms. I’d totally go back just to have that again.

Not far from Bournemouth is Poole, which I like to joke is my town. It’s located along the coast, and there are a row of pubs that line the harbour so you can enjoy a drink with a waterfront view.

Have you been to Bournemouth or Poole before?

Much love, Katie xo
