This easy circular walk starts from Bournemouth pier and follows the River Bourne, which is not much more than a stream, through attractive gardens. The walk then turns up a hill into Westbourne where you will find many restaurants, coffee shops and pubs. Finally the walk returns to the pier through the wooded Alum Chine and along the promenade.
The walk starts from Bournemouth Pier. There are a number of car parks close to the pier, probably the easiest to find is at the Bournemouth International Centre(BIC). Walk to the pier for the start of the walk.
