Coach Hire and Minibus Hire in Bournemouth

Bournemouth is the jewel of the South Coast thanks to its pristine sandy beaches, calming sea breeze and thriving local economy. This is a part of the world where new ideas and industrious thinking have always thrived, and you only have to take a walk down to the shore to see what we mean. Hut number 2359 is part of the first row of beach huts open for public use anywhere in the UK and has stood on the same site since 1909. Today 1 in 10 of the nation’s huts are found on this same stretch of beach, with more than 2,000 currently in regular use.

Look out to sea and you’ll see the iconic Bournemouth Pier stretching out into the water and still offering a range of traditional arcade games as well as the obligatory freshly caught fish and chips.

If you want something truly unique, West Cliff beach is the only place in the UK where you can get legally married while feeling the sand between your toes. All this adds up to make Bournemouth a destination not to be missed.
