Outdoor Bowls Tours to Bournemouth –  Sample Itinerary

SAMPLE ITINERARY

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

Sunday

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.

Monday

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.

Tuesday

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.

Wednesday

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.

Thursday

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.

Friday

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!

Saturday

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

o Bournemouth.

Arrive at the hotel in the afternoon then spend the rest of the day relaxing and settling in.  Explore Bournemouth town centre with it’s many shops or take a leisurely walk along the seafront.  In the evening meet the rest of the party for a drink in the bar followed by a superb dinner.

 

Tuesday

Enjoy breakfast with your fellow bowlers at the hotel and then spend the morning at your pleasure.  Depart in the afternoon for a local bowls match at The Dolphin Indoor Bowling Club in Poole.

Enjoy the company of the locals as you play a friendly match – usually fours but occasional ‘triples’ with tea and biscuits during the match.   After the match enjoy a drink at the bar or a cup of tea with the host team and then return to the hotel for dinner.

After dinner enjoy an evening of music with friends.

 

Wednesday

Start the day with a leisurely breakfast and then you have a free day to do as you please and explore the local area.  Perhaps take a bus to Christchurch and have a wander around the pretty town and quay. Bournemouth has a fantastic bus service with buses to most local towns every 10 minutes.

In the evening meet in the bar at the hotel followed by dinner.  Spend the evening playing cards, chatting and relaxing with friends.

 

Thursday

After breakfast enjoy a free morning with a chance to see anything you may have missed seeing in the town that has been recommended to you during your stay; perhaps a trip to the fabulous Russel Cotes Museum.

In the afternoon depart for a local bowls match just up the road at Bournemouth Indoor Bowls Club.  Enjoy the game followed by socialising with the host team making new friends.

Enjoy your final dinner at the hotel followed by music for dancing and perhaps presentation of prizes from your tour!

 

Friday

Enjoy your breakfast then it is time to go home!
