“My personal favourite, located in Southbourne which is roughly 5 mins from the Annexe if you drive, or 20-25 min walk. From the outside it looks like a restaurant (never actually eaten food in here but is always busy!) but there is a secret bar upstairs. 1930s style offering a small list of cocktails all made to order, or they come up with something you may prefer instead. You have to book and cannot just turn up on the night but it is completely different to anywhere else you will find in Bournemouth! Definitely worth a visit ”

Cafe
“See where Mr Selfridge used to live. Take a tour of the castle, then finish up with a delicious cream tea in the castle tea-rooms. From here take a walk down the zig-zag to the beach, or along the cliff top through Steamer Point nature reserve.”

“The beaches here are gorgeous and you can walk to the quay and buy freshly caught fish or hire crabbing tackle to catch your own crabs over the sea wall! There are plenty of places to eat, my favourite being The Noisy Lobster which is on the beach front with views of the Isle of Wight. You can walk from here to Highcliffe where you can have teas in Highcliffe castle, set in lovely gardens and who host a variety of entertainment in the evenings.”
