Bournemouth Air Festival
Watch those magnificent men (and women) in their flying machines!
One of the largest free air shows in the country is the Bournemouth Air Festival which over the last 9 years has attracted a combined audience of over 7 million people! This year we can expect to see more planes and displays both in the sky and on the ground. Nothing has been confirmed yet but based on previous years you can expect the Red Arrows every day along with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, the Vulcan, Hunter Jet and many more.
As the show happens along the seafront one of the best places to watch is from the West Cliff just 200 yards from the Bournemouth Sands Hotel, where the planes are quite often at eye level!
Spend 5 days at our Bournemouth Sands Hotel, which is only a short stroll to the heart of the action, on a Half Board basis or if you can make your own way to the hotel. All residents will be guaranteed FREE on site parking.
