Boscombe is a small town, which is now a suburb of the much larger Bournemouth. Many of the students attending Bournemouth University live in Boscombe, including Dane Caswell.

Boscombe Market is held every Thursday & Saturday.

Boscombe is by the sea, Honeycombe chine, and it has its own pier, the original was built in 1888, with a unique aircraft-wings design added in the 1950s at the entrance which was a listed building.

Boscombe has a very long sandy beach and from Boscombe Cliff Gardens you can get a wonderful view of the bay that stretches around from Hengistbury Head to Bournemouth, and to Alum Chine and the entrance to Poole Harbour.

 

Boscombe centre contains some examples of art deco buildings, for example the building now inhabited by Motabitz.

Boscombe is also home to Shelley Manor, once owned by the Shelley family.

It is possible to surf next to the pier. In 2005, plans were made to build an artificial surf reef close to Boscombe Pier.

On the 30th October 2005, the historic Boscombe Pier was closed as it was deemed unsafe and the local government promised to reopen a refurbished pier in 2006 or 2007.

Work on the new Pier is completed, but it is nothing like the old one, and lacks character. In an attempt to attract more visitors a surf reef is being laid next to the new Pier. In the early part of 2008 the first section of the first artificial surf reef in the northern hemisphere has finally rolled of the barge, and has been laid on Boscombe seabed, it makes up one sixth of the volume of the reef. The waves near the new Pier are bigger now, but nothing to phone home about, unless you have small children who will not now be able to paddle in the sea without being knocked over.
