Nothing on the pier except mini golf so not commercial. A pleasant walk. It said outside a charge to go on but I wasn’t challenged so was free. Worth a visit if you like piers

Free entry, a really unusual mini crazy golf (£4 / adult, with edible fish food golf ball!) and fun musical chimes to play. Plus, the usual pier experience. Far better than Bournemouth pier!

It's good to walk along the pier and get a different view of the beach. Hengisbury Head, Isle of Wight (including The Needles), Bournemouth pier and Swanage all in view. There are various percussive instruments to play with along the pier. It is also free...More

This has to be the most boring pier in the world. Just a concrete jetty the nothing on it. Still just a good strole away you have Bournemouth pier, this is a bit better but still not great.

This a quick review of Boscombe Pier beach and the local facilities. Bank Holiday Sunday we arrived at Boscombe beach around 9am and there was already a small queue to park in the Undercliff parking. This is run by parking attendants so is quite organised....More

Boscombe beach is a great little place, not as dirty sand as Bournemouth and not as many if-any cigarette ends. Parking is easy and disabled bays aplenty so its convenient for us.

The pier is okay and its free. In reality it is a walk, a vantage point, a fishermans place but it is nice to get out over the sea and get a blow in the face. I was walking between Bournemouth and Hengistbury Point so...More
