I have lived here for two years and I love everything about Bournemouth. The beach is gorgeous and there are a few cafe's that are definitely worth hunting down: South Coast Roast, Skinny Kitchen, Boscanova. Also, try the Cosy Club (opposite Topshop) for breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, scrabble, monopoly. It's amazing! They also have a vegan & gluten-free menu
