    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:

    WHAT’S IT LIKE 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, you still won’t know what it’s like to live there. Living in Bournemouth is all about shopping locally, bringing up your kids, and the day-to-day quality of life the town offers.


    We asked a few of our movers who are now residents, what it’s like living in Bournemouth:

    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 more than the UK average in July. Having said that, it’s hard to find anywhere to sit on Bournemouth beach because of the number of tourists we get here over the summer! We’ll normally head up the coast to enjoy one of the quieter local beaches.” 

    GREAT NIGHTLIFE

    “There are around tons of clubs and bars in Bournemouth – something I really wouldn’t have believed before moving here. This feels very much like a young person’s town, especially during term time with all the uni students. 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, unless you want to party.”

    A GREAT PLACE FOR KIDS

    “If you’re moving to Bournemouth to bring up a family, 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 making friends with the grazing animals.”

    A FRIENDLY TOWN

    “Lots of people, like me, move from London to Bournemouth. Which means leaving behind a network of friends, so we’re all looking for ways to meet new people. As a result, Bournemouth is 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.”

    GOOD SHOPPING, BUT NOT ON THE HIGH ST

    “Bournemouth, like loads of other British towns, has seen rents go up and shops move out of the centre. TBH it looks a bit unloved at the moment and I’m hoping there are some regeneration plans. Most locals I know shop in the retail parks – Castle Point is a big favourite. It’s easy to park and everything’s in one place.”


    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.

    BEST PLACES TO LIVE IN BOURNEMOUTH

    Bournemouth is home to seven-mile stretch of beaches with brightly coloured beach huts, a traditional pier and plenty of ice-cream kiosks. It’s been a popular tourist spot since Victorian times, and now it’s a top choice for movers looking for a better quality of life. Don’t allow its reputation as a sleepy seaside town fool you though; the increasingly young population makes this city a vibrant place to live.


    So where are the best places to live in Bournemouth? Schepens is a local family-run removals company with over a century of experience of Bournemouth removals. We’ve moved families to every part of the town and its environs, so we know which areas are the most popular with movers. We’ve pulled together the 5 best places to live in Bournemouth. Read on for a snapshot of each.

    WESTBOURNE

    Westbourne is a Bournemouth suburb located just 1.5 miles west of Bournemouth’s city centre. Nestled between Alum Chine and Branksome, there’s a blend of boutique shops, cafes, and green spaces. The Bournemouth railway station is conveniently close, only about 1 mile away. Its proximity to the coast make it a popular destination for locals with Alum Chine Beach just a leisurely stroll away.

    “Westbourne’s in Bournemouth but it has its own distinct identity, and it’s become hugely popular in the years since we moved in. Lots of independent coffee shops and a really lovely Victorian arcade. We’re close to the sea, and some of Bournemouth’s beautiful parks – a great place to live.”

    • Population: 2,395
    • Average Age: 45
    • Low Level of Crime
    • Property Prices: £660,000 is the average price of a semi-detached property.
    • Schools: 7 Nursery Schools (3 Outstanding, 4 Good), 1 Primary School (Good), 1 Secondary (Good)

    TALBOT VILLAGE

    Talbot Village is a quiet residential area approximately 2 miles north of Bournemouth’s city centre. Located near Bournemouth University’s Talbot Campus, it’s a quiet, leafy suburban area with a number of green spaces with easy access to the centre. The Bournemouth railway station is about 3 miles away, providing convenient connectivity.

    Talbot Village was created by two Victorian sisters who wanted to create somewhere where ‘the poor’ of Bournemouth could settle and earn a good living. Well, the area has certainly flourished and it’s a real haven sitting between Bournemouth and Poole. The beach is close by and there are two ‘good’ primary schools within walking distance. Not many shops, but good bus route into Bournemouth.”

    • Population (Talbot and Branksome Woods): 12,137
    • Average Age: 42
    • Low Level of Crime
    • Property Prices: £633,000 is the average price of detached property. £226,000 is the average for terraced houses.
    • Schools: 2 Primary Schools (Good), Talbot Heath Independent School for Girls 3-18

    SOUTHBOURNE

    Southbourne is a seaside suburb of Bournemouth. It is situated to the west of the town centre, about 2 miles away. The nearest railway station is Bournemouth Station, which is about a mile away. Southbourne is a popular tourist destination, with a Blue Flag beach and a variety of shops, restaurants, and bars. It is also a popular place to live, with a mix of independent and chain shops, as well as a number of schools and parks.

    “We have the reputation for being a ‘smart suburb’ but if you live here it feels like a friendly and welcoming community. The shops are lovely, and we love being so close to the beach. The schools have been great for our children and the area has always felt very safe. We like walks on the cliffs, days on the beach and nights out in the local bars.”

    • Population: 6,385
    • Average Age: 49
    • Low Level of Crime
    • Property Prices: £459,080 is the average price of a semi-detached property.

Property is less expensive in Boscombe than in Bournemouth, and there’s a Blue Flag beach, a pier, and a variety of shops, restaurants, and bars. It is friendly seaside town in its own right.

    “People in Boscombe tend to be a bit defensive about the town. It’s had bad press over the years and people who live here feel that they’ve been unfairly characterised. We moved here nearly a decade ago and the town’s been steadily improving throughout that time. It’s never going to be Christchurch, but it’s got a beautiful beach, a nice pier, and a really friendly High Street.”

    • Population: 20,719
    • Average Age: 38
    • Low Level of Crime
