Customer Travel Tip: Gets badly clogged during rush hour as it's relatively small for the amount of traffic, but likewise is not somewhere you need to drive around in. The tourist info boards are great. Ask locals for more local knowledge once you're there; they were friendly and forthcoming with advice.

Liked: Friendly people, nice beach and lots of choice for food and drink.

Disliked: Parking meters everywhere in town.

Customer Travel Tip: Hengistbury Head is just so beautiful.

Liked: Absolutely beautiful. I could not really rate stuff like nightlife, so it may be good or not. We did walks along the beach, one to Hengistbury Head and they were amazing.

Disliked: Public transport was quite difficult (we found that we'd rather walk instead of wait an hour or more for the bus).
