Bournemouth Lower Gardens
Holiday Travel Guide

Take in the alluring scents and bright colors of the wide range of flowers in this Victorian park with scenic paths and woods.

As part of the city’s green trilogy, Bournemouth Lower Gardens is a scenic park area with a Victorian design. It is the southern sister of the Central Gardens and Upper Gardens and features extravagant flowerbed displays year-round. Attend a concert at the bandstand in this typically English garden.

Amble leisurely through the park and appreciate the attractive blocks of bright red and lilac flowers. Inspect the impressive floral displays to note their range of color, texture and scent. Make a space for yourself in the well-groomed lawn in the shade of a tree and enjoy a picnic. Sit at a bench with a book to appreciate the tranquil ambiance.

In the Aviary, watch a flurry of brightly colored birds. Meander through the Pine Walk, which is a charming route of aromatic pine trees. It was known as Invalids’ Walk in the Victoria era, because people believed the trees’ scent cured chest diseases. Discover the large rock garden, which dates back to the 1930s and has multiple levels of creative plantings of international species.

Take pictures of the park’s Victorian elements, such as the Pine Walk Bandstand. The park hosts many events and concerts and also offers hot air balloon rides in the Bournemouth Balloon. In the summer, participate in the open-air art exhibition. Walk through the gallery to see works from local artists. Peruse paintings, photos, sculptures and other artistic delights.

Take a scenic walk through the park. As you leave, find yourself staring at the sea near the Oceanarium. Relax at the beach and enhance your tan.

Find the Bournemouth Lower Gardens in the center of the city. Explore numerous bars and shops in the area, in addition to other picturesque gardens. Take a bus to one of the many stops bordering the park. The beach and pier are just a 5-minute walk south of the park.
