  • For the perfect Valentine’s, Pal or Galentine’s Day…

For a day time plan, what better backdrop than Bournemouth Seafront. Head to Smuggler's Cove Adventure Golf with friends, family, or your other half for a round of mini golf. Revel in the seafront nostalgia and head to Pier Amusements to play some classic games down by the pier. Cap off your day and wander along the seafront for a sweet treat and grab a round of milkshakes at Prom Diner. Take in the seafront sights and sounds as you sit back and relax.
