Easter in Bournemouth 2012

March 20th was the first day of spring 2012 and the weather here in Bournemouth is more like summer this weekend!  We are expecting temperatures of 20 degrees, the sun is shining and the forecast is looking very accurate.  To celebrate the start of spring Pimms have erected a sculpture on Bournemouth Beach the world’s largest deck chair.  Check back later today for photos.

The Daily Telegraph reported earlier this week:

“Towering over the coast, the deckchair is taller than a double-decker bus and weighs more than a fully-grown elephant.

Created by artist Stuart Murdoch, the structure took three weeks to put together and has popped up just in time for a weekend of bright sunshine.

The deckchair was commissioned by a drinks manafacturer to mark the start of British Summer Time on Sunday.

Mr Murdoch said: “It has been fantastic to see people on the beach pointing at the chair and having their photo taken with it.

“Deckchairs are so quintessentially British – everyone who has seen it has smiled and it’s great to watch people drawn to it like a magnet.”

We are hoping for another “mediterranean” Easter holiday here in Bournemouth.  There are a few rooms available at The Queens Hotel but hurry don’t leave it to the last minute to reserve for your Easter Break.  The programme at the hotel is excellent see below:

The following Easter programme is the culmination of many enjoyable Easters, and one which I am
sure, will keep you entertained throughout your holiday with us.
To our returning guests, your presence makes our Easter Holiday at the hotel so special. To our new
guests, we are very much looking forward to making your acquaintance during your stay & providing
you with a unique & memorable holiday.
