Summer Holiday Fun - Exploring Bournemouth Pier

Updated: Oct 1, 2019

Being a tourist in your own town...

Bournemouth Pier, Dorset - the kids had spied the funfair at the end of the pier!

Don't you love showing your kids the area you've grown up in? I love the nostalgia and the fact that you get a fresh perceptive through their eyes...

I realised after all the years of living in Dorset that I'd never actually ventured down on Bournemouth Pier! So this was on our list of things to do this summer holiday.

After shepherding the kids away from the arcades and "grockle" shops (as my mum would always call them!), we bought our tickets and ventured onto the pier. To the kid's delight they noticed a funfair at the end! Whilst we enjoyed a coffee and took in the view; the kids enjoyed a few rides. There'll still be lots to come back to when they are older as there is a Rock Reef and a large zip wire across the sea. The trampolines were a big hit with my boys but poor Ava was too little to have a go. I love this picture below of her watching her brother - it sums up all her frustration of being too small and wanting to join in...

Here's a few snaps of our fun afternoon...

So Bournemouth Pier was a big success and now ticked off the list! If you're interested then check out for up-to-date ticket prices and attraction list. Now where to next?... Thanks for reading, Beth
