Christmas in Bournemouth

With a range of Christmas activities, events and festivals, breath-taking scenery and walks and a variety of attractions make Bournemouth the perfect destination for your Christmas Breakaway.

The wonderful Christmas Tree Wonderland has been put on hold for 2020 but Bournemouth is still the perfect place to get into the festive spirit. This year an open-air alpine village market will replace the Christmas Tree Wonderland and will take place from November 13th through to January 3rd. Watch the town centre become aglow with twinkling lights, late-night shopping, traditional Christmas market stalls and an open-air single-storey bar where you can soak up the festive atmosphere, indulge in some warming beverages and watch the world go by. Wrap up warm and take a stroll and smell the mouth-watering aroma of mulled wine, tuck into the many hot food options available all from local suppliers including sweet treat Churros and hog roast baps, watch the lights sparkle on the Bethlehem Tree and listen to the familiar choral tones of festive hymns. There is no better festive feeling.

Whatever the weather, Bournemouth boasts 7 miles of stunning beaches all waiting to be walked and explored. Wrap up warm and enjoy a hearty winter stroll along the many beaches in the area. Discover all that  Bournemouth has to offer with many local attractions including Bournemouth Oceanarium, Bournemouth Pier, Bournemouth Aviation Museum and Adventure Wonderland to name just a few. Something for all to enjoy.

Only minutes from the beautiful beaches, bars and boutiques of Bournemouth, the Durley Dean is a location winner this Christmas.  We have a range of overnight packages available this Christmas and New Year period. Spend Christmas by the Sea at Durley Dean Hotel.
