Bournemouth is a large seaside resort town on the south coast of England in Dorset with Poole to the west and Christchurch in the east. In the 18th century, Bournemouth was little more than a small fishing village, associated with the smuggling trade. Captain Tregonwell and his wife opened Bournemouth’s first hotel, the Royal Exeter, in 1812, and Bournemouth gained a reputation as a health resort with its safe sandy beaches and bracing sea breezes. It has seven miles of sandy beaches, a long promendade lined with beach huts, two piers, many hotels, several theatres and landscaped gardens plus lots of attractions and amusements for the holidaymakers. To the east lies the Jurassic Coast, a 96 mile (155km) World Heritage Site.
