Boscombe East is a small, lively suburban area spanning from Boscombe Pier to Iford. It is a short walk away from the affluent and attractive area of Southbourne, and as such is a fantastic place to buy – as properties here are somewhat less expensive, but still have access to fantastic facilities.
There is a clear divide in properties in Boscombe East – north of Christchurch Road is mostly semi-detached houses and to the south is predominantly detached housing – meaning the area has a lot of choice for buyers looking for a family home.
Boscombe East is a short walk away from Boscombe Pier and the beautiful sandy beach next door. The seafront boasts mini golf, restaurants, pubs and a small convenience store – perfect for a day at the beach!
Just next door you’ll find Pokesdown train station – which is on the London line – making transport links excellent in this area. You’ll find fantastic bus links, supplied by More and Yellow buses, with services running frequently into the town centre.
Boscombe East is dominated by the Boscombe shopping centre (The Sovereign Centre). Residents will have all the local amenities they need on their doorstep – the centre features a supermarket, shops and a food court, and backs on to Boscombe High Street. Here you’ll find more restaurants and shops, as well as a large Aldi. Local gem Boscanova is not to be missed – this trendy pancake house is a favourite with the locals.
Shelley Manor is a large GP surgery, on the border between Boscombe and Boscombe East. Next door to the medical centre is the adorable Shelley Theatre – a small theatre that hosts performances and community events – something for everyone!
