I love Bournemouth , but at Christmas, I love it even more. And this years Christmas Tree Wonderland is amazing, magical and spectacular. And best of all, it’s free.
We were kindly invited to experience the wonderland a couple of weekends ago. And we had the best time. We started right down on the beach front because I love a beach hut, especially a Christmas themed beach hut.
The boys then got to do something they’d never done before, ice skating at SKATE . We enjoyed an hour on the ice with hire of the skates included. We timed it perfectly as our session ended at 4.30 so it was just getting dark. It was so magical and an experience the boys are still talking about now.
We then had a much needed drink at Moguls Alpine Bar which overlooks the rink. Mulled wine for me and a pretty awesome hot chocolate for the boys.
It was then dark enough to experience the wonders of the glittering trees and illuminations. Including the spectacular Wonderland Tree, Seattle Tree, Giant Teddy and Rockery. The incredible lights were so captivating and stunning, so beautifully created and laid out.
We were treated to some much needed fuel at the Prom Cafe right on the seafront before taking a ride on the Big Wheel. We’d been on it before, but never in the dark. And what an incredible view we had. The glistening lights of the Wonderland were so magical, a perfect birds eye view of the trial.
The festive trial is open until 2nd Jan 2020 so if you want to feel festive and experience Bournemouth at it’s very best, I highly recommend a visit.
