As a bournemouth resident I was curious to see the "newish" Tourist Information Centre.
Previously, before its move to Bournemouth sea front it had been located in Westover Road. Personally I felt the Westover Road location much more convenient for tourists.
When the weather is bad not every visitor wants to walk all the way from the town centre to the sea front !!!
Having said that it carries all the info a tourist would need, along with a few touristy "bits & pieces" to purchase.
3* rating is due to the location as I firmly believe a more centrally located centre would be of more use o tourists.

Warm, neat little tourist information office with a good location close to the beach. Member of staff was helpful and cheery. Local information on display but felt it lacked a wider range. Seaside themed bric-a-brac on sale if that is your thing.

Cute information office on the sea front stocked with lovely seaside themed goodies to buy ... nice stuff, not tacky tourist tat. The lady on duty was alone the Sunday morning we went in because her colleague was ill but she was helpful to all of us in turn and had a good sense of humour. We left having a giggle.

The first tourist information office we've ever been in where we felt we should walk out again! Very unhelpful staff who were too bust chatting than wanting to assist visitors. We learnt more from looking at the brochures than being helped.
