Bournemouth is a large coastal town situated in the South West county of Dorset. The current population of this town currently stands at around 180,000 people, and continues to rise. Although typically an aging community, Bournemouth has seen huge investment over the last 5-10 years resulting in a large influx of 16-24 year olds drawn in by the local amenities, nightlife, and of course the growing University.
There are strong transport links to and from Bournemouth. The main road in and out of town is the A338 which then links onto the A31/M27 where you can then access the M3 towards London. There are 2 main train stations, both of which are on the Weymouth – London Waterloo line which also links to Basingstoke, Southampton, Portsmouth, and other major towns. There is also an airport that serves over 600,000 people a year.
