Bournemouth is a large resort town on the south coast of England in the county of Dorset. As with many coastal towns in the United Kingdom, Bournemouth was a hugely popular destination for tourists from other parts of the British Isles and for those travelling to England from overseas.
In recent times, Bournemouth has become better known as a retirement town due to its milder climate in the winter and warmer summer temperatures, but the town obviously appeals to all of its residents; a survey in 2007 revealed that Bournemouth was the happiest place in Britain as 82% of residents asked said they were happy with their way of life.
As the largest populated area in Dorset, Bournemouth is the natural hub for culture, entertainment and recreation in the county and is the destination of choice for many locals seeking a good night out or those coming from further afield a weekend away by the sea.
Bournemouth is heavily laden with 'after dark' entertainment spots for the young and the young at heart; the majority clustered around four areas: the town centre, West Cliff, East Cliff and Charminster.
Unsurprisingly, the majority are clustered in the town centre although some of the more popular spots - Bumbles, Sixty Million Postcards and Klute to name but a few are found in West Cliff.
As well as bars, pubs and nightclubs, Bournemouth is home to four casinos; two regular and two mobile: the Absolute Fun Casino and the Viva Las Vegas Fun Casino being the latter, and the Gala Casino Bournemouth and Genting Casino Bournemouth the former.
Genting Casino Bournemouth is located on Yelverton Road and promises patrons 'one of the ultimate nights out in Bournemouth' and has the choice of American roulette, blackjack, three-card poker and electronic roulette and more; while Gala Casino is situated on Westover Road near the sea front and delivers fine dining, champagne bars and cocktail lounges with its choice of games.
Both the Viva Las Vegas Fun Casino and the Absolute Fun Casino offer the standard fare of blackjack, roulette, and poker, plus the latter has dice games, with a twist.
Instead of being regular casinos, the Absolute Fun and Viva Las Vegas Fun take the excitement on the road and are used by businesses and corporate groups for team nights out and is also available for wedding parties.
Players are issued fun money and at the end of gaming time the casinos will offer prizes to the best players if supplied by the company hiring the venue for the night. Both the Viva Las Vegas Fun Casino and the Absolute Fun Casino specialise in hosting charity events.
Away from the nightlife scene, Bournemouth has a couple of notable landmarks including the town's award-winning Central Gardens, The Bournemouth Eye and the Bournemouth International Conference Centre which has hosted a number of the party conferences for the UK's mainstream political parties.
