(Next to: Branksome Dene Car Park)

There is a public car park at Branksome Dene (a full day parking ticket is £21.60). Immediate surrounding street parking can be free if available (check the signs).

If you are driving from London/North/East follow the signs to BOURNEMOUTH (not Poole) as otherwise you’ll be sent miles around the long way. From the West, head into Town Centre then follow the sandcastles painted in the road.

Nearest Train stations:

  • Bournemouth, Branksome or Parkstone (the stations are in that order coming from London)
  • South Western Trains are from Waterloo and take just under 2 hours to these stations
  • You can also travel to Bournemouth direct from Manchester, Birmingham, Oxford and Reading on Cross Country trains

It’s a short taxi ride from the station(s)

Bournemouth will have a taxi rank outside the station, for the other stations call United on 01202 556677 in advance.


Tickets are just £2, and these are both open-top buses!
