Meet at the entrance of the Sovereign Shopping Centre in Christchurch Road pedestrian precinct ready to start at 11am … the walk will last approximately 75 minutes …
Be prepared: the route is mainly flat and is within the precinct, Sovereign Centre and Royal Arcade. I recommend wearing flat, comfortable footwear and dressing appropriately for the weather.There are good bus services to Boscombe Centre, plenty of pay carparks nearby and some on street parking a short walk away. There are good loos in the Sovereign Centre and lots of cafés nearby. NB: This walk is not suitable for dogs as Sovereign Centre has a no dogs policy.
