Nothing speial bout Westbourne on a very wet day. Found a very nice chocolate shop and had lunch in M&S Food Hall. Westbourne is not that large and quite easily be covered in less than half a day. Only about 15-20 minutes from Bournemouth Square, so worth a visit.

Don't leave Bournemouth without a visit to Westbourne, and Westbourne Arcade. There is a good choice of eateries and especially morning coffee shops, and some nice shops which offer different choices. Plenty of parking a available, plus a post office, and the best selection of greeting card shops I. The arcade that I have ever come across

Just to the west and adjacent to Bournemouth this village area has many shops , and eating places . It is always busy with locals and the car parks and on street parking are often full . It is well served by local buses and can be a pleasant way to pass the afternoon.

Foreign students just watching football on TV and not even buying any rinks or food ! Staff did not seem to care at all.

Love to go there to the DIY shop the music shop and the handmade shops. They provide lots of inspiration, love to look for gift ideas there. There is a second hand shop where u can always find some treasures on a bargain price. There is a cafe type of place which looks good but I haven't tried it yet.
