See the gardens in bloom in Bournemouth

Bournemouth, Dorset

Head down to Bournemouth to see the extensive collection of gardens and enjoy the wide range of facilities on offer.

The Upper, Central and Lower Gardens are located in the Bourne Valley, between the Borough Boundary and Bournemouth Pier. The gardens, which are Grade II listed, still retain much of their original character and the Lower Gardens even host of a number of major events including the ‘Candle Illuminations’ during the summer evenings.

The Central and Upper sections tend to be quieter and you can go on guided walks through the gardens or take a cycle through them. Elsewhere in Bournemouth, don’t miss your chance to see the town in a whole new way from a giant helium balloon. The ride offers a panoramic view of the English Channel as well up to twenty miles away from the highest point in Bournemouth.
