‘Hidden Histories of Boscombe Chine’

Whether you are a resident or visitor you’re sure to enjoy this circular guided walk with Hattie Miles. You will find out about Boscombe Chine’s history, the many famous people connected to it and discover some of its hidden secrets. Meet at the Chine Hotel, 25 Boscombe Spa Road, Boscombe BH5 1AX  

There will be more walks from the Chine Hotel next year.

Photographs of 2017 Boscombe Chine walks can be found on the walkingtalks Facebook page.

Be prepared: this is a moderate walk and includes some slopes and steps with a good rail. I recommend wearing comfortable shoes and dressing appropriately for the weather. Walkers can park in the hotel’s carparks, but please let reception know you are there. Refreshments are available at the Chine Hotel before or after the walk. 

For more information see: walkingtalks.wordpress.com or contact Hatte Miles on hattiepix@gmail.com (groupbookings on alternative days can be arranged).

‘The Darker Side of the East Cliff’

Join Hattie Miles on this intriguing circular walk from Hotel Miramar on Bournemouth’s East Cliff. You will hear the extraordinary story of a murder that took place in 1935 not far from the hotel, as well as an historic shipwreck and the story of an RAF war hero. Be prepared for some ghost stories and intrigue too.

New dates for “Darker Side of the East Cliff” and “Darker Side of the Westcliff” walks will be posted soon!

Price: £6 (over sixties & students £5) … no need to book, just turn up!

Be prepared: this is a mainly flat walk on pavements but I recommend wearing comfortable shoes and dressing appropriately for the weather. Walkers can park in the carpark at the rear of the hotel, just let reception know you are there … there are also bus stops nearby. You can enjoy refreshments at Hotel Miramar before or after the walk.
