SOME TIPS FOR MOVING TO BOURNEMOUTH | BOURNEMOUTH GUIDE
A useful guide if you’re looking to move to the Bournemouth area or if you’re relocating within Bournemouth:
Living in Bournemouth
As one of the UK’s leading providers of Bournemouth removals, there’s one question we get asked more than any other: What’s it like living in Bournemouth? However carefully you research the schools, the property market and the employment prospects, they only offer a partial perspective. Knowing how it feels to live in a place is all about the day-to-day quality of life afforded by a town, and its residents.
We asked a number of our clients for their observations on living in Bournemouth:
1. Sunshine and Sandy Beaches
It may be a bit predictable to say this, but it really does feel as though Bournemouth gets more sunshine than the rest of the UK. Most years we get an average of around 10-12 hours of sunshine every day in July, and 6 hours in May and August. So, there’s plenty of time to enjoy Bournemouth Beach, complete with pier and palm trees!
2. Plenty of Nightlife
There are around 40 night clubs in Bournemouth – something I really wouldn’t have believed before moving here. This is now very much a young person’s town with the average age being 34. At the weekends the town centre does tend to get taken over by party goers and it can be a bit overwhelming. Best to plan your nights out for weekdays.
3. A Great Place for Kids
If you’re moving to Bournemouth because you want more space to bring up your kids, it’s the perfect choice. It’s not just the beaches, there’s also a beautiful wilderness to explore on the doorstep. I didn’t know anything about the New Forest until I moved here, but we now spend loads of time exploring, taking family walks and enjoying the grazing animals.
4. Bournemouth is Diverse
At one time Bournemouth had a reputation for being traditionally English. No more! There are loads of language schools in the town, which means there’s an influx of people from all over Europe living in the town. It really feels quite cosmopolitan in the town centre, although the affluent areas tend to be more old fashioned.
5. Great for Making Friends
Lots of people move from London to Bournemouth. So they’re leaving their network of friends behind, and are looking for ways to meet new people. Consequently it’s an incredibly sociable town with meet-ups, clubs, choirs, yoga and drama going on all over the place. You could easily be out most nights doing one thing or another, so you never feel at a loose end.
Schepens has been helping families moving to Bournemouth for over a century now. We’re a local removals company with a wealth of local knowledge we can share with clients.

Working in Bournemouth
50 years ago Bournemouth was known as the retirement capital of the UK. How times have changed!! The average age in the region is now 34, and is predicted to stay that way for the next decade. And Bournemouth is now driven by a mighty ambition – to be one of the UK’s top 21st century digital city-region by the sea.
The UK Silicon Valley?
The digital sector has been experiencing strong growth for the past 5 years. There’s been £1billion development investment since 2013 and this has boosted the digital presence across the region. Bournemouth was rated as the premier place for high-growth digital tech businesses by Tech Nation in 2017, and jobs growth in this sector is 25% between 2014-17.
There are over 400 digital agencies based in Bournemouth, including Thinking Juice, Amuzo, creators of Lego computer games, Redweb and 3 Sided Cube.
Bournemouth has proved something of a magnet for the financial services industry, thanks to its cost competitive location. The sector has created 1,000 jobs in the region in the last 2 years and employs 11,375 people. The big employers are JP Morgan, Barclays, LV=, and BNY Mellon. Bournemouth is demonstrating that, whilst London remains the industry hub, there’s a growing trend for strong regional centres to help drive the UK’s economy.
In 2018 Bournemouth saw a 20% growth in start up businesses, making it the second fastest area of growth in the UK. The predicted growth pointed to the creation of nearly 7,000 new jobs by the end of the year. Recent successes include Jimmy’s Iced Coffee, Brewhouse and Kitchen, Conker Gin, and Koh Thai.
One of the success drivers for new start ups has undoubtedly been the creation of companies like THIS Space that offer workspaces designed to promote collaboration and growth.

It is also a fantastic place to raise a family, with a low crime rate, great employment opportunities and many more advantages. This article will take a look at the reasons why so many people are moving to Bournemouth before detailing the Schepens Bournemouth removals services.
WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE MOVING TO BOURNEMOUTH?
Bournemouth is a lovely coastal resort town with a population of more than 180,000 people. Founded in 1810, the city has grown from a small fishing town into a bustling township with a lot on offer.
The town has the perfect combination of a successful economy, beautiful local environment, friendly population and reasonable cost of living. The main reasons people move to Bournemouth include:
1. People love living there! – The people living in Bournemouth love the lifestyle so much that a national survey in 2011 saw the town voted “the happiest place to live in the UK”! The town has friendly citizens, beautiful beaches, great restaurants, and great fresh food — which combine to make it a very happy place to live!
2. High-quality schools – The schools in Bournemouth are of outstanding quality. There are 26 primary schools in the borough, so there are plenty to choose from if you have young children. Bournemouth is one of the few local authorities to offer selective schools, ideal for particularly bright pupils. There are also two universities — Bournemouth University and Arts University Bournemouth.
3. A high standard of living – The standard of living in Bournemouth is very high, with great public infrastructure, a low unemployment rate, cheap food, and quality healthcare.
4. Wonderful history and culture – Bournemouth has been a popular tourist destination for well over a century when visitors first flocked to the health spa, and its handsome Victorian architecture and beautiful, award-winning pier stands testament to this. Bournemouth is also home to the famous Russell-Cotes Art Gallery.
5. Great beaches and parks – Bournemouth boasts seven miles of beautiful golden sands which are recognised as some of the most beautiful and well-kept beaches in the UK. The famous Upper, Central and Lower Gardens in the centre of the town are famous for their natural beauty and wide range of amenities.
6. Transport Links – Bournemouth is easily accessible by car, bus or train. The town is well-connected to the south-east rail network, and there are three local railway stations. Travellers from Bournemouth can be in London Waterloo in 97 minutes.
7. Superb shops – Much of Bournemouth town centre is pedestrianised, and this makes it a great place to shop! There’s also an amazing choice of shopping experiences, from Victorian shopping arcades, to Castlepoint, the UK’s largest retail park just outside the centre.
8. Great Property Investment Potential – Maybe it’s the air of happiness and contentment that Bournemouth breeds, but house prices continue to rise steadily in this area. Average house prices rose by 2.9% at the beginning of 2016, to £261,232 making this a great city to consider investing in.
