Days out ideas in Bournemouth
If you’re looking after older relatives or are family and friends looking to take your loved ones out for the day, we recommend the following day out ideas to make the most of your time here in Bournemouth.
At Branksome Park, we often take the people in our care to the museums dotted around the town, especially as Bournemouth is celebrated for its unique history and culture. We love the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum – perched on a clifftop at the East Cliff Promenade, this Italian style villa boasts an impeccable collection of high Victorian and Pre-Raphaelite art, as well as showcased art exhibitions throughout the year.
Garden centres always go down well with the people who live with us, as they enjoy the sights of beautiful garden landscapes with seasonal shrubberies and bedding plants. We recommend you visit Cherry Tree Nursery – a charity based on horticulture that gives meaningful occupation in a supportive environment, aiming to restore wellbeing to people who suffer with mental illness.
Situated just a stone’s throw away from the sea, Bournemouth is renowned for its quality local and sustainable fish and seafood. Rated as one of the best restaurants in the area, Sobofish takes locally sourced ingredients, combined with the finest and freshest seafood around. Sobofish can cater to all palettes, with kid, veggie and vegan options, with as indoor and cosy outdoor heated booth seating.
Bournemouth promenade and pier provide the perfect seaside respite for the people who live with us. The flat surface makes it accessible for those unsteady on their legs or in wheelchairs. In addition to getting out in the fresh sea air, there are plenty of ice cream huts dotted around and – of course – the ever-popular Harry Ramsden’s fish and chip shop!
