Bournemouth is without a doubt the most vibrant and pleasant student city of England's southern coast. Its charm, quaintness and miles of beach coupled with accommodating facilities have helped make it an important centre for tourism, education and business. The city offers a well-organised transportation system, with an excellent network of buses and trains extending throughout Britain and to many parts of Europe. London is just 1.30 hour away by train.

It's never dull in Bournemouth, with powerboat races, vintage car shows, international tennis championships and windsurfing competitions taking place all over the year.

It is also a safe and inviting city for the youngest. The beaches, the splendid parks in the city centre and the pedestrian areas offer young visitors the opportunity to enjoy their holidays in a safe and relaxed environment.
