City Sightseeing Bournemouth Hop On Hop Off Tour review

What a great way to see Bournemouth and explore the sites on a Hop On Hop Off tour bus. Their open-top double-decker bus tour takes around 1.5 hours but it’s great for getting stopping off and visiting different places.

The tour has recently started a new route with new commentary. The bus journey now goes right through Poole Park where you can see the recent multi-million-pound transformations. The buses depart from Bournemouth Pier and Poole Quay hourly every day from mid-May until later in the year.

You can purchase tickets for 24 or 48 hours and hop on and off as much as you like. You can even upgrade to a bus and boat ticket and enjoy a boat cruise with City Cruises from Poole Quay. There are 23 sightseeing stops at some of Bournemouth’s and Poole’s most interesting places including Westbourne, Canford Cliffs, Sandbanks, Poole Park and more. You can even now purchase a combined ticket to include bike hire.

Please note – Most places may still require you to pre-book online in advance. Some venues also still have certain areas closed for safety reasons. Please check their website and/or social media pages before visiting.
