West Cliff

West Cliff

West Cliff is the main hotel and guest house area in the town, it used to be served by it’s own railway station, Bournemouth West, serving the thousands of British tourists who came for their traditional seaside holiday. Before being developed this area was the start of the heathland that stretched as far as Poole. There were only a few small houses, one of which was the home to the great naturalist Charles Darwin, for a time.
