Things to Do With the Kids in Bournemouth This Summer

Bournemouth Pier and beachBournemouth is jam-packed with activities in the summer, and here at Brooklands Hotel we have listed our favourites that are guaranteed to bring joy for the entire family:

Coastal Activity Park

The coastal activity park in Boscombe is the place to take the kids on a beautiful summer’s day and just 10 minutes away by bus. Packed with more than 30 activities for all levels of fitness and ages there’s something for everyone. There’s instructor led sessions including volleyball, bouldering, slacklining or snorkelling. Or you can book a court for the whole family and engage in some healthy competition. Many of the activities are free so you can grab your best friend and scale the boulders at Boscombe Pier or smash them at table tennis!

The Beach

If you’re planning a trip to Bournemouth, then it’s vital you bring the pup. We’re a dog friendly hotel, and Bournemouth beach has dog friendly areas too! The kids with their buckets and spades, a very happy puppy and an ice cream makes for the perfect day out for all the family. At Brooklands Hotel, the things that we love about Bournemouth is that there is a lovely long stretch of beach, so whether you’re looking to relax in the sun or be where it’s happening, there’s a little slice of beach for everyone.

Pirate Adventure on Brownsea Island: 18th July – 9th August

Children and their imaginations can run wild during this fantastic day out on Brownsea Island. There’s a free trail to follow of the shipwrecked pirates with the accompaniment of local storyteller Michele O’Brien that will have the kids quaking in their eye patches. Our bed and breakfast in Bournemouth is a short walk away from buses, making it easier for you to get there earlier and raring to go!

Friday Family Fiesta with Fireworks: 24th July – 28th August

Every summer at Brooklands Hotel we look forward to the breath-taking fireworks and celebrations that happen throughout the lower gardens and on Bournemouth Pier. The kids will love the face painters, circus workshops, fire performances and street performers throughout the lower gardens and you’ll wish you’d never have to leave.
