Bournemouth’s star attraction is undoubtedly its beach. There’s 7 miles of it, with some of the finest golden sand and the clearest seawater in all of Britain. The beach was widened, using imported sand from the Isle of Wight!
Stretching out from the shore is Bournemouth pier, featuring arcades, shops, a funfair and a dock. People who want a break from the beach will still find plenty to do. The town centre contains many shops, restaurants and bars.
Another famous sight is St. Peter’s church, which houses the remains of Frankenstein’s author, Mary Shelley. Rumour has it that she was also buried with her husband’s heart. The story goes that when he was cremated, one year before Shelley’s death, his heart refused to burn in the flames. She plucked it from the ashes, and held on to it as a keepsake. It was discovered after she passed away - and placed in her hands, within the grave.
