Getting around 

Bournemouth has convenient bus services that operate frequently from the city centre which makes venturing around Bournemouth simple. You’ll find that the main bus terminals are located at the train station and the square, here you’ll also find the tourist office.
The train station is located outside of the city centre, so it’s probably best to hop in a cab which are usually reasonably priced for short distances. Due to it's popularity we would always recommend pre booking a taxi or using Uber, trust us the queues for the Taxi rank are legendary, We've stood in them enough times!
