Bournemouth's main town centre is a hubbub of glittering shops and is listed in the top 26 UK shopping centres.
Here boutiques rub shoulders with high street favourites, and department stores all sit happily on wide pedestrianised boulevards. There are many arcades filled with unusual independent stores selling high quality merchandise, as well as all the top names in shopping.
Outside the town centre are many pockets of great shopping to indulge in. Westbourne is famous for its interior design stores and has a wide range of fantastic hairdressers. Castlepoint Shopping Centre, situated in Castle Lane West, 5 minutes from the Netball Centre, offers a huge range of shopping outlets, including Gap, H&M, River Island, M&S.
