The Cumberland Hotel Travelling Directions
If you are heading into Bournemouth from North, South or East (from the M27 at the end of the M3 onto the A31):
You’ll drive in along the main road into Bournemouth turning off just after Ringwood – A338 (known as the Wessex Way).
It is a few miles down this road until you head into the 50mph limit at Bournemouth (with lots of cameras so don’t speed unless you want your photo taken!) you’ll get to a roundabout (and now it’s 40 mph so watch out!).
At this roundabout TURN LEFT (you might not see it, but Bournemouth Railway Station will be under the bridge on your left).
Then you’ll come up to another roundabout and go STRAIGHT OVER.
Then, at the next roundabout, go straight on and follow this road (Gervis Road) until you reach yet another roundabout where you need to TURN LEFT into Meyrick Road.
You’ll find yourself facing the sea at the end of this road on the cliff top. At the end of this road TURN LEFT along the cliff top road (East Overcliff Road) and after around 150m you’ll see The Cumberland Hotel on your left (just opposite a bus stop!)
If you miss the hotel as you drive past just take the first left and left again (into Grove Road) and you’ll end up behind the hotel where you can also access the car park from the back of the hotel.
Here’s a link to the hotel’s contact page with a map: www.cumberlandbournemouth.co.uk/contact-us/
If in doubt find East Overcliff Drive on the sea front in Bournemouth and drive along the road away from Bournemouth pier and the town centre and you’ll find the hotel!
Parking at the hotel is FREE, but if it’s full you can also use the car parks of the two neighbouring hotels – The Suncliff and The Cliffeside – as they are part of the same hotel group.
Street parking along the cliff top in front of The Cumberland Hotel is available all day (9am–5pm) if that’s closer (or easier). www.myringgo.com/uk/parkinglocator/1850
If you are travelling by train then the closest main station is Bournemouth. A Taxi from the station will take 5–10 mins and cost under £10 to reach the hotel.
Trains from London depart from Waterloo (www.southwesttrains.co.uk), and there are cross-country services (www.crosscountrytrains.co.uk) that come straight through from Manchester, Birmingham, Oxford and Reading (and various other stops on the way) which terminate in Bournemouth.
London Heathrow is around 90 minutes drive away and there are direct coach links (www.nationalexpress.com) or a pre booked taxi is around £100 one way. If you’d like an airport pick up let my team know and we’ll connect you with local airport cars that can transfer you.
