Planning your summer holiday?

It’s warm, it’s beautiful and it’s nearly the summer holidays! For many of you this would have been a very welcomed time of year and particularly after these last few months we’re all the more eager to get outdoors, visit some lovely beaches and parks and stay at a home away from home – Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole are here waiting for you.

We have been working tirelessly, in collaboration with a number of partners, to ensure that your visit is a safe one. Tourism sector partners and businesses are preparing to welcome you, providing information about what you can expect from your stay and we urge everyone to Respect, Protect and Enjoy our destinations, in line with the latest Covid-19 Government guidelines. We have also prepared itineraries outlining the many things you can do and still remain safe. 

When you visit, we want to ensure you feel as comfortable as you can, knowing you are in safe hands which is why we communiate the latest Covid regulations and guidance and are actively encouraging Visit Britain’s We’re Good to Go accreditation.This UK-wide industry standard and consumer mark aims to provide a ‘ring of confidence’ for tourism so that businesses can demonstrate they are adhering to the respective Government and public health guidance, have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and checked that they have the required processes in place.

A handy holidaymaker information sheet has been pulled together helping you to stay safe during your visit. Should you become poorly with suspected Covid-19 symptoms this guide will let you know what practical steps to take to keep you, your loved ones and others as safe as can be. There is also a useful Tourist Charter that we encourage all visitors to review before you set off on your journey so that you can ensure you are well enough to travel and can thoroughly enjoy your stay.

While you’re here, our colleagues over at Visit Dorset have launched a survey to measure consumer intention and sentiment. We’d be grateful if you could kindly complete the survey and thank you, on our partners’ behalf, in advance.Make sure you Know Before You Go: check out the dedicated pages on our BournemouthChristchurch and Poole websites providing details about how you can make the most of your visit and keep yourselves and your loved ones safe.

New Bh2 leisure complex seizes opportunity to engage with sea front visitors and advertise on giant LED screen on Bournemouth Pier

The newly opened Bh2 Leisure complex, which houses the new ODEON cinema and a host of well-known restaurants, has taken up the opportunity to advertise on the giant LED screen on Bournemouth Pier.

Bryan Taylor Centre Manager advised, “We recognized that the LED screen has one of the most prominent positions in Bournemouth and it can’t help but grab visitors’ attention as they wander along the seafront. It’s perfectly situated on Bournemouth’s beautiful pier and we’re hoping will let visitors know that after a trip to the beach we’re the perfect place to come along to to continue the holiday fun!”

Bournemouth Pier Marketing Manager Sarah Hunter advised, “We are offering businesses a fantastic opportunity to showcase their businesses and special deals to a huge, captive audience.  Bournemouth welcomes over 6 million visitors to the beach each year, with an average of 477 million pounds spent in the town. Last year a staggering number of nearly 2 million visitors walked along the pier, not to forget the tens of thousands of local residents too who frequently stroll the promenade.”

Sarah continued, “The LED screen is gaining lots of interest and can do a brilliant job of raising a businesses’ brand awareness and operates 365 days a year from 8am- 11pm. We would urge anyone interested in finding out more about this advertising opportunity to contact Natalie Fox on Tel: 01202 237915 or Email:
