Great for people watching, stopping for a snack or an ice cream, listening to buskers. Then get on with some serious shopping, but you can always come back between bursts of shopping to rest your weary trotters.

This area has been fully refurbished and is a pleasure to visit. It gives a 'continental' look to this area of Bournemouth and is a welcome addition

The Square is great, wonderful for good shopping and an array of bars and cafe's. The choice is yours, but I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Not too long a walk to the beach (depending on age) :-)
