Bournemouth breeds and attracts creatives, entrepreneurs, innovators and digital philanthropist’s. What’s so special?
From the moment I first came to Bournemouth, I was curious why it rarely flags up as a go to destination, let alone be on anyone’s short list for relocation. Having moved here from London for a better work life balance, as a family, we soon go it. What seemed like a gamble at first, soon became a no brainer when we started to meet the people that make our home town so special.
The more you scratch below the surface of the beautiful surroundings, victorian architecture and seaside attractions, the more you discover the real Bournemouth.

Many have the opportunity to move at any point yet they still choose to stay here.
