  The Station From The Train
by johngayton

Bournemouth Railway Station is about a 15 minute walk north of the town centre. This is on the main South West Trains route between London (Waterloo) and Poole/Weymouth with trains running both ways roughly every half hour during the day. It is also the terminus for Cross Country services to and from Manchester Piccadily which have a roughly hourly day-time frequency.

Just outside the station is the bus interchange with regular buses into the town centre and the surrounding area. Also there are usually plenty of taxis available on the rank for those with luggage.

This is quite a small station but with all the basic facilities required and the manned service counter is especially helpful with looking for good deals for you if booking advance tickets - there was one occasion where they actually found a cheaper ticket for me than I could have gotten via the internet!

Contacts are those for National Rail.
