Trains to Bournemouth

Great days out by train

Seven miles of golden sand and award-winning beaches makes Bournemouth the perfect destination for a sunny day.

Relax on a deckchair and admire the views, or walk up the coast and surf the waves at Boscombe Surf Reef.

If the beach isn’t your thing, then why not spend the day browsing Bournemouth’s independent boutiques and the popular Westover Road, or strolling down to the Bournemouth International Centre for an array of shows and exhibitions.

Travel to Bournemouth from London with our Advance fares for just £11 Standard Class and £18 First Class, one way, when you book early.
