High above the East Cliff promenade are the turrets and flags of The Royal Bath Hotel, one of the town's leading resorts at this time. Its advertisement boasted patronage by '...the Prince of Wales, King of the Belgians, the Empress Eugenie...and all the most distinguished personages visiting Bournemouth'.

Memories of Bournemouth, East Cliff from West 1897

My Dear Home Town Of Bournemouth

I was born there in 1928, in Boscombe Hospital, Bournemouth, and lived in Bournemouth till 1962. There is no where like Bournemouth, lovely beaches, stores, theatres, the Chines, and Shell Bay. An excursion to Poole and then to Canford Cliffs, and on a little ferry across to Shell Bay. Of course, you then wanted to go to Corfe Castle. Another favourite spot for my mother and I was Hengistbury Head on a Sunday afternoon with our picnic and the sometimes, a trip from Bournemouth Pier on the boat to the Isle of Wight.

Later on, thru the war years, my favourite place was the Pavilion, where being ...Read full memory

Family Connections To 'The Baths'

The Baths was the family home during the First World War. My great grandfather was Albert Henry Milledge, formerly a schoolmaster at a school in St Michael's loft of Christchurch Priory, who gave up teaching to help Alfred Roberts manage 'Roberts' Baths' which were then just private baths, after William Roberts, his father, died. The Roberts were formerly coal merchants. My great grandfather was responsible for building the original swimming bath opened in 1887. My other maternal great grandfather was Henry Newlyn, of Newlyn's Hotel which subsequently became the Exeter, and former mayor of Bournemouth.

Dancing At The Pavilion

My name is Brian Johnson and I was born in Bear Cross, Kinson, Bournmouth in 1934. Twenty years later I used to spend most Saturday evenings dancing at the Pavilion or The Town Hall.
