A romantic night in Bournemouth...

You may not know it yet but Bournemouth is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. There’s plenty of great things to do on a date night in Bournemouth, here are just a few suggestions for when you come to stay at our Love Nest apartment.



Hopefully the sun is shining when you arrive in Bournemouth and you can head down to the beautiful Sandbanks area for a bit of friendly (or not so!) competition at the 18 hole crazy golf course. We know it’s a little silly but it’s so much fun! Sandbanks is just outside of Bournemouth centre but it’s only a 10 minute car journey from The Love Nest and the beach right next to the golf course is a must-see. 

Get outside and explore the amazing bournemouth gardens! There’s 3 km of gardens to explore. The lower gardens start in the town central, so it’s super easy to get to. Wonder down with an ice cream and often you will come across some form of entertainment, there is always something going on (especially in summer)! The path ends up at Bournemouth pier so you can continue a romantic stroll along the beach. If you fancy a longer/quieter stroll head up to the central and upper gardens where the planting is a lot more natural and the vibe is more relaxed.


The beach is a perfect spot for a romantic picnic. Grab a blanket and watch the waves lap against the shore with great food and a glass of wine. You can pick up your picnic essentials at the nearby Tesco - don’t forget the strawberries and cream!

If you can’t be bothered to go and buy all the ingredients, you could always pick up a takeaway from the town centre. There’s plenty of different restaurants, so you’ll be sorted whether it’s pizza or Chinese you fancy. 


Don’t fancy getting sandy feet? Book a table at The Jetty in Christchurch. It’s a 25 minute taxi journey but we honestly think it’s worth it. What could be more romantic than dining in an award winning restaurant overlooking Christchurch harbour. The delicious locally sourced food combined with the relaxed atmosphere is so special that you will be sure to have an amazing time. 



Neo is an elegant restaurant and also a great place to get a few drinks, before or after dinner. The lounge bar offers a luxurious London cocktail bar vibe that we love! 

If you enjoy some entertainment with your cocktails, 1812 offer live music, so make sure to check the website before you visit. 

And of course to complete the perfect intimate evening, you should stay in our Love Nest, a luxury apartment for just the two of you. It’s beautifully designed with you in mind and is perfect for a romantic getaway that you won’t forget.

The romance doesn’t have to stop there. The next morning you could enjoy a lovely breakfast out on the balcony or pop out for some brunch at one of the many places in Bournemouth.

These are just a few of the many things you could do on your next date night in Bournemouth. Let us know in the comments whether they are any places you consider a must on your dates.
