Early Summer Break in Bournemouth

Bournemouth is positively buzzing with all of the events that are up and coming over the next couple of months, so to make things that little bit easier we’ve made a list of our favourite things here at Brooklands Bed and Breakfast Hotel.


If the careful brush strokes of an artistic genius are what tickle your fancy, the Russell-Cotes Museum (in collaboration with the Mucha Foundation) is hosting the first Alphonse Mucha exhibition seen in the UK for the last 15 years.


Explore the beautiful Dorset countryside with the RSPB and discover the local wildlife on one of their family friendly walks. Hosted every Saturday until December, this hour-long nature walk will reveal a hidden world – for free!

Also, between 12th-13th June, the nature experts at Brownsea Island are surveying all the flora and fauna present, so if you’d like to help out, join the Brownsea Bioblitz for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Food and Drink

10 days of the best food experience is on the way! Visit the Bournemouth Food and Drinks Festival between 19th–28th June and have some foodie fun by the sea! If you’re into a bit of jazz as well there are two Jazz Nights running in the town centre on 19th and 20th June.

Back to Brownsea Island, join the largest celebration of the Dorset coastline on 4th July with a pre-ordered picnic in the Villano Café Garden’s Marquee complete with live music. Alternatively bring your own picnic and head down to the beach for some sun, sand and sea at the Big Beach Picnic.



If you’re more in to two wheels than four, the Dream Machines Bike Night is for you. Bike enthusiasts from far and wide roll into Poole Quay every Tuesday night from April to September to show off their mechanical pride and joys and compete for ‘Bike of the Night’.
