As you might expect from a beach town, Bournemouth has lots for you to do and enjoy while offering the traditional small-town experience. Enjoy 12 miles of beach along the beautiful Jurassic Coast, and catch some waves by trying your hand at surfing or other water sports. If you’re more of a night owl, Bournemouth has a lively evening scene thanks to its university town status, with live music nights and summer festivals to enjoy. Kaplan Bournemouth organises regular activities such as ping pong tournaments and karaoke nights: you’ll easily make new friends to explore the town with! The school also organises half/full-day trips (at a reasonable cost) to nearby cities for an extra slice of English life!
