Westbourne is a small village that lies a few miles to the west of Bournemouth. It is a thriving upmarket shopping district, with independent fashion boutiques, thrift stores, cafes, and pubs on Poole and Seamoor roads, which are linked by a lovely Victorian covered arcade. The village is also just a few minutes walk to some superb beaches by way of several chines – dry, wooded gorges that run to the sandy beach. Alum Chine, Middle Chine and Durley Chine are examples, all having Blue Flag Award quality beaches.
