Bournemouth Square is a hive of activity, even in the rain. Plenty of shops and restaurants to keep anyone happy.

We visited the square on the bus from our hotel. There were lots of shops in the vicinity and the area was clean.

Always a great place to sit and watch the world go by. Always something going on to grab your attention, always pleasant to linger especially if the sun is shining.

I’m sure this is a wonderful place on the warm sunny day but it is just another city centre Square well served with footpaths and good access to the local gardens and parks and many many shops also good access to all the local buses

The best thing about Bournemouth, especially in the square, is there is always something new and interesting going on!

During winter you get the Christmas markets and late night shopping. The summer always something new and fantastic such as an array of buskers and summer fayres.

Unfortunately it gets very busy and if it rains, can be extremely slippy. For all the good in the day, at night the square is not worth visiting, with nothing going on except for people only there to cause problems and trouble.

Lovely open area, but not worth a visit at night.
