Sixt Tip

Bournemouth's Victorian History and Prominence

Bournemouth's growth took place during the Victorian era of resort holidays when visitors took to the sea in horse-drawn bathing huts before enjoying a promenade on the pier. Bournemouth Pier was opened by the Lord Mayor of London in August 1880 and has been an important part of the town's landscape and life ever since. Breathe in the sea air while walking the length of the pier before heading into the attractions of the RockReef. This all year round activity centre has climbing walls, aerial wires, the exciting Pier Cave and the first pier to shore Zip Wire in the world, the Pier Zip Line.
