Bournemouth’s Little Brother, Boscombe

My final pier today was the charming Boscombe, a few miles down the coast from its better known brother Bournemouth. It lwas late afternoon and there were still a few folks on the beach, but the deck chairs had already been packed away:

I didn’t find any tea and cake on the pier, either, so had to make do with a tub of tasty strawberry ice cream from the entrance café isntead.

A Grand Time At Weston

The second pier of my Somerset visit was Weston-super-Mare Grand. And it would seem it’s grand by name and Grand by nature these days. Refurbished and re-opened in 2010 after a devastating fire in 2008, it now boasts many indoor amusements, and modern facilities.

The Pierhead also boasts a fine restaurant which serves an excellent Cream Tea!
