Local Attractions Bournemouth
Bournemouth Hotels offer a great base from which to explore the full delights of Dorset & Hampshire. The Riviera Hotel is ideally situated centrally between Bournemouth and Poole so it is a great location for days out.

Dorset offers a wide variety of things to see and do for the visitor and resident alike. It is an ideal leisure location for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts all year round, as it benefits from a favourable climate. Dorset’s 88 miles of remarkable World Heritage Coastline including the mighty Chesil Beach, one of the geological wonders of Europe, and the Jurassic rocks and fossils of over 200 million years ago generate enormous interest. The coastal path is easy to explore and walkers are rewarded with dramatic seascapes and stunning landscapes. It is a photographer’s paradise, and a sea captain’s nightmare! Much of Dorset’s coastline is used for recreation, including sailing, windsurfing, fishing, diving and climbing. More informal leisure pursuits which take advantage of the scenery include horse-riding and golf.
