Although typically an aging community, Bournemouth has seen massive investment over the last 5-10 years resulting in a large influx of 16–24-year-olds drawn in by the local amenities, nightlife, and of course, the growing University.

There are strong transport links to and from Bournemouth. The main road is the A338, which then links onto the A31/M27, where you can then access the M3 towards London. There are two main train stations on the Weymouth – London Waterloo line, which links to Basingstoke, Southampton, Portsmouth, and other major towns.
