Schepens Provides Removals to Tuckton, Bournemouth
Bournemouth is very much a 21st century success story. A few decades ago it was considered a sleepy, seaside town inhabited by retirees. Its contemporary image couldn’t be further from that. Bournemouth has acquired the nickname ‘Silicon Beach’ on the south coast because of the opportunities it affords in the fintech, digital agency and software sectors. Each year it hosts two major events for the tech sector; the BFX Festival and Digital Wave.
Bournemouth remains a stunning place to live, whether you move there for tech opportunities, or to improve your well-being. It has more than its fair share of sandy beaches, and receives 25% more sun than the rest of the country. It’s ideally placed for excursions to the beautiful New Forest, and its 2 universities means that the average age of residents is now a youthful 34!
