Outdoor Bowls Tours to Bournemouth – Sample Itinerary


The following is a suggested itinerary for a 6-night Outdoor Bowls tour:


Meet the coach at your local bowls club and then travel to sunny Bournemouth! On arrival at the hotel your luggage will be taken up to your bedrooms. You may then fancy a breath of fresh air so why not take a walk along the seafront. In the evening meet the rest of the bowlers for a drink in the bar followed by dinner.


Enjoy a full English breakfast followed by a free morning at your leisure. At lunchtime have a sandwich at the hotel before the coach departs for an afternoon match at Argyll Bowling Club on Bournemouth’s West Cliff where you can enjoy breath-taking views of the coastline. After the match return to the hotel for dinner and a relaxing evening.


Leave the hotel mid-morning for an afternoon further afield (e.g – Wimborne or Lymington). This will give you time to take in the scenery on the journey and then take a couple of hours enjoying the historic town before the match. Back at the hotel enjoy another sumptuous dinner perhaps followed by an evening of music.


Depart from the hotel at lunchtime for a local bowls match at Knyveton Gardens Bowls Club – a pretty green close to the town centre. After the match enjoy a drink with the host team and then the coach will return you to the hotel. Enjoy another excellent dinner then afterwards enjoy entertainment organised by the hotel (for example a singer), host your own quiz or bingo or maybe even a trip out to the theatre.


Depart on the coach after breakfast for a full day trip to include a bowls match in the afternoon. One suggestion is to travel using the chain ferry to Swanage then take the steam train to Corfe Castle followed by an afternoon bowls match in Swanage. We can always arrange earlier start times for matches further afield or a later dinner.


Enjoy your breakfast followed by a free morning – for shopping, sight-seeing or just relaxing. In the afternoon enjoy your final local bowls match (perhaps at Southbourne Bowling Club). Then return with time to do your packing and get ready for your last dinner at the hotel followed by music for dancing and perhaps presentation of prizes from your tour!


Enjoy your breakfast and then it will be time to say goodbye.
