Are You Planning a Move to Bournemouth?

Why is a move to Bournemouth suddenly so sought after? Located on the sunny south coast of Dorset, Bournemouth has been riding a surge of popularity over the past 5 years. The Victorian resort was voted the UK’s best loved seaside town in 2019, causing crowds to flock there for its award-winning beaches, and sunny climate. Many of those day-trippers fell in love with the town and decided that it would be a great place to live.

Schepens is a local moving company that has been providing Bournemouth removals for over 100 years. What is it that movers love about this haven in the south west? We asked some of the town’s newer residents what made them move to Bournemouth. This is what they told us.

Best and Longest Beach in the UK

I stayed on here with my partner after uni, and now I can’t imagine living anywhere else. We’re so spoilt here. The beach is amazing, and I never get tired of it, the town is great too. It’s friendly, and there a really diverse mix of people living here. Plus, Bournemouth has its own international airport, and great rail links.

Bournemouth to London in 2 Hours

It’s hard to believe, when I’m walking the dog on the promenade, that I’m just 2 hours away from London. It’s like another world to be honest. We wanted to get out of London and start a family, so a place by the sea was the ideal. I wouldn’t want to do the commute every day, but once a week or so is no problem.

Great Rural Locations to Explore

If you move to Bournemouth, you’ll need a bolthole for those days when the whole world seems to descend on the town. We always take the kids on the train to Brockenhurst and then let them loose on the New Forest. Within minutes you’re away from the crowds and in stunning countryside with wild ponies.

Good Looking Town and Great Parks

It’s students and tourists who drive the local economy, so the town is kept nicely and there’s a fair number of bars, cafes, and restaurants. Always feels lively. Town centre can get a bit rough late at night, but that’s the same anywhere. A stunning 20% of Bournemouth is made up of parks – really lovely parks. Our favourites are the Upper, Central and Lower Gardens and the Alum Chine Tropical Gardens

“So happy with the service provided! Was worth every penny. We packed our own boxes but paid for dismantling and reassembling of furniture, and removal and delivery of most of our belongings. The guys were very efficient and friendly. We definitely could not have moved in 1 day without them. Will certainly recommend Schepens and use again if we ever need removal services.”
