Why Bournemouth is the best place to celebrate Christmas

We love Christmas in Bournemouth. The cold, crisp sea breeze coupled with the beautiful surroundings of Bournemouth gardens, the town centre and non-stop Christmas events make it the perfect place to get together with family and celebrate. Brooklands Hotel is the perfect bed and breakfast in Bournemouth due to its proximity to all of the Christmas events. Revel in Christmas cheer and mulled wine with the family by booking a weekend at our B&B in Bournemouth and enjoy these events:

Residents would call it the best event of the year in Bournemouth. Inspired by traditional German Markets, Bournemouth Square is surrounded by beautiful Alpine Chalet stalls, decorated with decorations and fairy lights selling handmade crafts, Christmas gifts and some of the most tasty festive food you’ll ever try. Grab your coat and gloves from your room in your Bournemouth B&B and head to the famous German Charcoal BBQ Bratwurst House for its delicious German sausages or have a mulled wine at the Alpine Chalet Moose bar with outdoor beer garden. The stage opposite the bar entertains the whole family with magicians, choirs, brass bands and fire shows.

Bournemouth Gardens Ice Rink

Skate under the stars at Bournemouth’s magical ice rink in the lower gardens. A hugely popular attraction at Christmas, ensure you’re there by booking a room in a Bournemouth B&B like Brooklands Hotel. The ice rink is part of the ‘Gardens of Light’ festival and is open daily, as well as chalets for festive treats and hot chocolate, mulled wine, beer and cider.

Gardens of Light Festival

Launched in 2013, Bournemouth Gardens are decorated with beautiful twinkly lighting and decorations to give it a festive feel. Feel the full effect by taking a stroll in the evening by booking a Bournemouth B&B and hop on the Santa Express with the kids or visit the Giant Snow Globe and have a family picture taken!
