Should I Move to Bournemouth?

What are the Best Places to Live around Southampton?

Plenty of Londoners are looking longingly at the south coast right now, and Bournemouth is one of the most popular locations. With a direct train line to London Waterloo, plenty of warm sunny weather and 5 Blue Flag beaches, it ticks lots of boxes. But what’s it like to live in a famous and beloved holiday resort?


For over a century Schepens UK removals has been moving families to Bournemouth, Christchurch, and Poole. Many of our movers started out by idly wondering ‘Should I move to Bournemouth?’ and are now long-time advocates of the seaside town. We asked 4 Schepens movers, now residents, whether Londoners looking to leave the city should move to Bournemouth.

1. Look at Bournemouth, and the Areas Around it

We moved to Bournemouth because we knew it from seaside trips, but then we discovered other places nearby that we liked better. We’ve moved out Poole way, now, because it’s livelier and slightly less touristy than Bournemouth. Christchurch is also nice, but it’s very quiet – and is popular with retired people.

2. Bournemouth is Great When All the Tourists Go Home

We love living in Bournemouth, especially in the winter months when we get the beaches to ourselves. In the summer we go on holiday to get away, or we spend the weekends tramping through the New Forest, or further up the coast. It’s a friendly town that’s livened up by students, with plenty of nice places to eat around and about.

3. So Happy to be Back in Bournemouth

I moved to London straight after university, and then moved back home to Bournemouth once my daughter was born. Couldn’t be happier. We live in Southbourne which is on the coast. Lots of young families like us living here and loads of clifftop walks to enjoy. For a night out we’ll go to Bournemouth, Poole, or Southampton.

4. Head North for Wimborne Minster

As part of our research prior to moving to the south coat, we spent a rather dismal November weekend in a guest house in Bournemouth. To lift our spirits, we headed to Wimborne Minster for lunch – and fell in love with the place. 10 miles north of Bournemouth, it’s a little market town packed with character and charm. Now we have a lovely home, and the south coast on our doorstep.
