Antiques Dealers and Stores

Pokesdown Antique Centre

848 Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6DQ, UK – 01202 433263

Simply the BEST place to look for Antiques and based in Pokesdown (Boscombe) (next door to QuikFit garage) . Catering for people who seek Antiques , Chandeliers , Jewellery , Paintings , Mirrors , all kinds of decorative antiques and vintage wrist watches as well as a GOOD selection of MID CENTURY may even be lucky enough to catch Felix the resident cat at home ! Check them out...there are several other shops in the close vicinity of what is known as Bournemouth's Antique & Vintage quarter as it has been for over 50 years... PLEASE READ.... The negative review left by NISHA DUTTA is misleading in that the person she had the problems with was a customer who was present in the shop at the time NOT anyone related to our shop...sadly there is no way of contacting her to explain this but just putting the records straight.

A traditional antique/curio shop of the very best sort and now so rare, idiosyncratic, stuffed and opulent with cascades of chandeliers dripping drops everywhere and always fun! Lovely treasures to be found, not necessarily perfect, but all the better as a consequence! The gorgeous owner Bonnie and her wisecracking sidekick Pete are true eccentrics - they honestly believe that they are just like everybody else! Whereas they are funny, engaging, often outrageous and always delightful, so pop in, buy something not to be seen anywhere else and enjoy a rare treat!

Don't usually writte reviews, unless I'm quite surprised. Either positively or negatively. In this case its a 5 star review! I needed a gear cable changed on my Cinelli bike, and despite the difficulty, it was done on the spot! Good price too. Plus a few other touches that where not required to be done! Excellent service! Attentive and professional. My apologies, but I can not remember the name of the middle-aged gentlemen that attended my bike. Both where awesome! My thanks to said gentleman that took such good care of my bike! All in all, compared to other bike shops, and I know most of them, amazing experience! Thank you! Hope they are valued and appreciated in that store. Irreplaceable! A much needed ideal in all companies!

What amazing staff. Will no longer go elsewhere. Needed two wiper blades and some bulbs had blown. The lovely guy changed them all and mad me legal for only £32. Couldn’t have been more pleased. Well done on excellent customer er service.

Kerry fitted a new Android head unit for us. I sourced it myself and he answered all my questions on the bits (Double-din fascia, wiring loom, etc) I would need and what would be involved over email. Always got back to me promptly and did a really good, professional job. Friendly guy too. Would recommend and thanks.

What can I say - quality service before, during and after install. Answered all questions and emails faster than I could send them. Truly professional and am certainly going to recommend and use again! Thank you!

Steve is a thoroughly professional and knowledgeable expert that patiently guides you through the options available and then does an excellent job of installation even offering help on other additional items. I cannot find fault with anything he has done and would highly recommend his services in anything car audio related. Excellent service and much appreciated!!

I cant fault the service from Steve he visited my home where I’d left my car waiting for him and fitted my stereo while I was at work , did the steering wheel controls fitted a new dashboard part to accommodate the new stereo and wired in all the input cables for all my mobile devices, got the cables routed to the part of the car I needed them in , also fitted a mic for the Bluetooth hands free and programmed the car multifunction display to say what I wanted on it. All of this was way beyond my expectations and I’m extremely pleased with it !, Absolutely recommended !!! 😀

TK Electronics Repair Center

I had my car speakers replaced and radio signal amplifier repaired swiftly and for a fair price. Would definitely use their service again.

My hard drive's USB connector had come off it's motherboard, and due to the damage, a number of shops wouldn't touch it. The guys here managed to fix it, and hence was able to recover my data. Couldn't thank them enough, and the service was very reasonable and fast! Thanks again :)

Richer Sounds, Bournemouth

545 Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth BH1 4AH, UK – 0333 900 0058

A great shop. Staff are friendly and welcoming. The staff don't try to just sale the most expensive tv, but the one that is good for you. We have shopped here for many years and would come again if we needed any thing else.

Got to say, very impressed with the assistance I have received from the staff members in the Boscombe outlet of Richer Sounds with a special thank you to Paul. His advise and knowledge has been extremely appreciated for me to achieve exactly what I was looking for. It's such a shame customer service like this is standard throughout all service providers. Certainly recommend a visit! Thank you Paul and the rest of the team!

Cars To Go Ltd

279 Charminster Rd, Bournemouth BH8 9QW, UK – 01202 567484

I brought a Jaguar 6 months ago and have been delighted with the service that I received. I was pleasantly greeted upon arrival but not pressured. All of my questions were answered which culminated in taking the car out for a test drive. I subsequently brought the car and have been very pleased with the after care I have also received. The car is perfect for me and would have no hesitation buying another car from Cars to Go if I was ever looking to upgrade.

Great guys with great cars. Really good service and extremely happy with the car I bought. Would happily buy a car from Michael again.

A1 Autocentre

107-111 Castle La West, Bournemouth BH9 3LG, UK – 01202 530100

Thanks to Tony and the team with not only sorting me out a decent car with low mileage but also finding me a great finance deal. Couldn't recommend these guys more! Very helpful in all aspects! Thanks again!

Very helpful and friendly from the start.. my son now has his first car, very well presented.

Filling Stations

Malthurst Westview

193 Charminster Rd, Bournemouth BH8 9QQ, UK – 01202 533456

My issue is with the 25 pence added to the receipt as a charity contribution-was not aware of which charity would benefit- being a bit of a technophobe had to ask how to delete - no problem but I felt it was a bit like the charity collector rattling a can in your face( something now not permitted officially). Looking at my receipt later there was no indication of the amount of fuel supplied or the rate of charge per litre( was indicated on sign as 121.99(Diesel) - so that is down to me note making a mental note of actual amount /litres etc. For the rest of the procedure I have no issue.


25-33 Palmerston Rd, Bournemouth BH1 4HN, UK – 01202 303334

Useful. Toilet was horrible Nd outside. But inside store was handy. Also car wash at side

As you would expect, a regular BP fuel station, well located for the Boscombe area and Sovereign Shopping Centre.


Bath Rd, Bournemouth BH1 2NJ, UK – 01202 559052

Very central in Bournemouth used it many a time save my bacon need to sort out really what's in and what's out in terms of it is a bit chaotic sometimes but I've always found it convenient and well located and friendly with loads of in their highly recommended

Always open. Great for extras with a coffee station, and a Gregs, 😊

Fuel 24 Hour


157 Holdenhurst Rd, Bournemouth BH8 8DQ, UK – 01202 553172

Not the best prices on fuel... but you do have the Cooper until late in the night open and also free air and free water for cars

Popular petrol station with 24 hour shop


341-345 Holdenhurst Rd, Bournemouth BH8 8BS, UK – 01202 612316

Shell never make me remove my motorbike helmet, thus stopping it being damaged in store. Very clever shell. Also it's nice to feel that as a biker I'm not being discriminated against. The reason why I like this shell is because it's uncluttered. Lots of petrol stations have so much variety it makes the shop interior look cluttered and it can be hard to find what you're looking for.


342 Charminster Rd, Bournemouth BH8 9QW, UK – 01202 521103

It’s ok. The shop is tiny. No contactless payments.

Ok garage. On easy route

Motorcycle and Scooters

Crescent Yamaha

324 Charminster Rd, Bournemouth BH8 9RT, UK – 01202 512923

Friendly staff and lots of motorbikes to look at. The used dealership is across the road. They do services which are always done to a good standard. Parts are upstairs and they are always helpful whether it be something for your bike or a helmet.

Can’t rate these guys highly enough. They had the bike I wanted but were unfortunately at the other end of the country from me. Gavin walked me round the bike using FaceTime so I could see any marks or blemishes (none to speak of, the bike was spotless) and provided me with enough information for me to be confident in sending them the cash before I had even sat on the bike. They arranged shipping of the bike with a reputable firm and bike arrived in top condition. If like me you are not local to the shop you should have no doubts about dealing with Crescent you will receive the same customer service and care as if you were standing on the forecourt. Thanks for all your help Gavin.

Dynomite Performance Motorcycles

179 Ashley Rd, Bournemouth BH1 4NL, UK – 01202 301201

Extremely happy with the service provided, the bike, the communication, the price and the delivery!! Never bought a bike without test riding it or at very least seeing it, but the quality of the experience with Dynomite has changed the game! A five star rating is greatly deserved. Loving the bike, thanks Matt / Dynomite!

Booked my Yamaha MT-03 in for sheared off tank bolt repair, and MOT. I dropped the bike off a day early at lunchtime. A few hours later, I received a call to say it was all done. Very impressed with the service. Will definitely use Dynomite again.

Bournemouth Motorcycle Hire Ltd

9 Soberton Rd, Bournemouth BH8 9BG, UK – 01202 380388

Well maintained bike (BMW F800 GS), polite and efficient service. Competitive rental pricing too.

148-150 Seabourne Rd, Bournemouth BH5 2JA, UK – 01202 425192

This shop has pretty much every school uniform in the area but this comes with a huge price tag. Secondary school blazer can be a swift £100, not to mention their £20 trousers. However, their service is second to none with kind and friendly staff who guide you through the fitting and buying process.

Non logo items very expensive compared to other shops. Dresses come up very small. Free delivery and good click and collect service.

Monsoon Accessorize

O, Castlepoint Shopping Centre, Castle Ln W, Bournemouth BH8 9UZ, UK – 01202 518916

It was nice experience. I went in looking for dress shoes for my daughters. There were quite a number of options to choose from and they were all pretty.

Monsoon has some nice items some can be a bit fussy my biggest problem is they don't have many small sizes and no size 6

Mens Clothes


Units G & H, The Castle Point Shopping Centre Castle Lane, Bournemouth, BOURNEMOUTH(CASTLEPOINT) BH8 9UY, UK – 01202 547566

Located at Castlepoint Shopping Park. It has a good variety of clothes reasonably priced. They specialise in Morningwear, Evening wear, Highland wear and Contemporary wear. They also have vast ranges of casual wear, with everything from men's jeans to classic t-shirts, and formal wear, with a full range of men's suits, shirts, ties and shoes. They are open on weekdays 9am - 8pm.

Style over quality / longevity. I've found that the price has increased over the years, whilst remaining on trend, but this is quick mass-produced clothing in the sense of thinner materials and stitching which can be ripped or torn easily. Call me old fashioned but I'd expect better quality for the price. Also, please note that this branch is on the second floor with no wheelchair or pushchair access.

Ashes Mens Wear Ltd

86 Old Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth BH1 1LR, UK – 01202 554809

Came into the shop with a blazer for an event this summer, advised on the shirt, tie and trousers to complete the look. Walked away very happy with a fantastic shirt and tie! The two salesmen were friendly and approachable with excellent knowledge. 10/10. Would recommend to any men in the area wanting to look sharp!

Top customer service, always attentive to the needs of the customers, great atmosphere and a nice place to shop on a day out in Bournemouth

John Anthony Bournemouth

22 Gervis Pl, Bournemouth BH1 2AL, UK – 01202 292692

Great shop with great clobber! There are often sales and I would say everything is sold at a fairly reasonable price except for the stone island and cp company clothing which is very pricy but i suppose that’s what u get with high quality brands

Bought four stone island pieces from here, best staff!And always very chatty and do help you out if necessary.

Crafts Shops

The Works

4, The Avenue Centre, Commercial Rd, Bournemouth BH2 5RP, UK – 01202 319237

I think the formula is a bit tired. They seem to be permanently holding an 'everything must go' sale, and yet the stock doesn't seem to vary significantly from one year to the next. Most stuff is pretty cheap, but the quality is basic rather than exceptional

Less impressive than on my last visit

The Works

Unit 15 The Sovereign Centre, Bournemouth, Boscombe BH1 4SX, UK – 01202 720413

'Everything must go' scream the signs on a regular basis. But everything doesn't go. Its back on the shelves in a few weeks time with a new price tag on it. Basic quality stationery items and a lot of remaindered book titles. Not the place to buy the latest paperback bestseller - it'll be far cheaper in the supermarkets.

Quite a nice selection of books and stationery. Not the latest books, but the works isn't about that. Staff are helpful.

One big space full of bargains. Yesterday most items 40% off. Some of the items clumped together rather than displayed and a few boxes broken but not a problem. Just think of Homebase but much cheaper. Nice helpful staff. Ample free parking outside.

Some bargins to be had if you're not to fussy on the designs. I got 4, packs of tiles for £12. Tiles look pretty good


Castlepoint Centre, Yeomans Way, Bournemouth BH8 9UB, UK – 01202 859899

I found this store has an extensive range of home, garden wares and building materials on the below ground floor. It has plenty of space, reasonable prices and isn't ever too busy. The staff know where things are but often lack detailed knowledge of products

Fairly large B&Q over two floors linked by moving travellator. Tools are on the ground floor along with electrical fittings and conduit etc. Good selection of garden furniture and barbeques. Reasonable show of floor coverings and tiles. Over 60s get 10% discount on Wednesday with a store card. Easy to park.

Rose at the florist gallery created absolutely beautiful flowers for our recent wedding. Myself and my now husband didn't really have a clue when it came to the flowers we wanted, but Rose listened to the type of theme and style we wanted and created our vision perfectly. Nothing was too much trouble during the run up to the wedding and Rose did everything she could to make sure we were happy every step of the way. Would not hesitate to recommend the florist gallery to anyone!

One happy satisfied customer, another beautiful bouquet of flowers delivered to my poorly friend. She said it had made her day and the lovely man who was dressed in his military uniform, made it even more special. Thank you for your 100% service and we highly recommend your flowers. Thank you again.

Triangle Hydroponics

67 Commercial Rd, Bournemouth BH2 5RT, UK – 01202 556661

Nice compact store inside small industrial unit, great selection of products for beginners and expert gardening

Cool shop ! The guy in Triangle Hydroponics explained the whole principle of growing my OWN vegetables - inside, to me -from basic stuff, to some more clever experienced techniques for those better aquainted with indoor growing . There are SO many options for growing like this, so Its Very important to have the right advice. Especially for a total beginner. Although 'The Triangle' is in the centre of Bournemouth, I found it a bit hard to find for the first time in the car, but luckily I managed to find a parking spot right outside the shop, although there are at least two car parks a short walk away. But before I Do decide to buy anything, I have compared the overall equiptment costs with several (on line) retailers myself, and Triangle Hydro's Does seem to be cheaper than most others. Maybe this will mean I WON'T have to wait for that allotment patch now then and I can even have my own fruit and or veg throughout next winter !

My (wife's) purchase is still ongoing, but thus far has been handled extremely well and competently (by Kelly) and satisfactory outcome eagerly anticipated.

I had my Michael Kors watch links removed and size adjusted for me. Cost £10 which is reasonable and would rather a place like this do it as they sell my exact watch. Nice friendly staff, quick service

Outdoor and Camping

Cotswold Outdoor

1, Castle Ln W, Bournemouth BH9 3JS, UK – 01202 529123

Unfortunately, I did find this shop a little bit overpriced and even a basic set of camping trousers was top end money. For similar quality of that you would find at somewhere like Mountain warehouse. The only saving grace is the wide and very well presented range of outdoor footwear so if you are looking to buy a decent pair of walking boots or just general outdoor boots this is a good place to go.

EXCELLENT SHOP, SUPERB STAFF!!! Wouldn't say I'm a "regular" at Cotswolds, it is my number 1 choice of outdoor shops though. What sets this brand apart from the others is their quality of product and the staff's level of knowledge, expertise and customer service - you won't find anywhere better! Arrived 9 min before closing today to buy my 1st pair of climbing shoes in over 20 years. The lad who served me had only been there for 4 months, yet his knowledge was superb. I had to try on 5 different sizes before I got it right (my fault as I'm usually a 9 - 10 UK and ended up needing an 11), yet he knew where the climbing test nuggets were, and chatted freely the whole time, keeping me engaged as a buying customer. To top it all off they price matched the product so I got £15 off the RRP! GREAT SHOPPING EXPERIENCE, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Small but very helpful pet shop would recommend going here over Pets at Home they have a small array of pets for sale in here staff are very friendly and helpful no pressure put on to buy. We bought a hamster from here they handle their pets so are generally nice friendly pets

It's lovely to Go to they sell all sorts of animals there and even kittens

Pets at Home

Castle Ln W, Bournemouth BH9 3JS, UK – 01202 514040

The staff here are so friendly and helpful. When asking for advice for our dogs, rather than immediately trying to sell us products, the assistant looked more at possible holistic and dietary causes and what we could adapt ourselves. Any pet store that puts pets first and their own sales second is a must visit place. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

Would give 3☆ because when I went today I bought a pack of discounted treats that were now 99p but it stayed £1.39 and I was too far away to change it and I also bought a monkey toy that was meant to be squeaky but it didn't squeak so I went back to the shop and had it replaced. Gave it 4☆ because the women who helped me (Mel and assistant manager Rachel I believe p.s. Mel is really very nice) were very friendly and didn't mind helping me out at all. Xxx

Good smart price. But difficult to find what I need

The usual massive stock of footwear and assorted other gear, crammed into the store. It always seems hot and claustrophobic in here, but the prices are keen enough. Not the grandest of entrances - up the stairs in a grimy little shopping alley.

Just to thank this store for the undivided attention I received this morning. The store has a large supply of everything you would need for office/home. I want to personally thank Hannah who was SO very helpful. I am extremely grateful to her for her help and attention and sure that she went over and above her normal duties. Thank you.

This lady is amazing! She's kind and generous too. She has started a page that donates cakes for cancer sufferers and frequently does this free of charge herself. The cakes she makes look amazing and so delicious. Even though I've yet to taste one myself, I can say that this is the person I will definitely take my business to. She's a pleasure to speak to which I feel is half the battle when looking for services. Keep up the good work!
