Post Parking in Bournemouth

Hi all you Funsters
We will be spending a few days in Bournemouth and wonder if any one knows of a good place to park the motorhome during the day (a few hours only), close to the town centre, east side preferably.
Our van is a Sprinter conversion, 3.1m high.
We are not necessarily looking for free parking but don't want to be driving all over the place looking for somewhere suitable!
Mike and Annie

You should be OK in Bournemouth this time of year. You can also park in Poole, Thistle Hotel Car Par on Poole Quay or Brittania Car Park on other end of Quay, about 4 for the day.

Blue Badge holders, there is free parking on Poole Quay.

Post Parking Bournemouth

The best car park in Bournemouth for shopping is, off Upper Hinton Road Bournemouth BH1

Google maps Satellite view .

After you turn left into the car park go to the far end plenty of room for vans.
