A Panoramic View over Bournemouth

Bournemouth Wheel

2016 was the year I promised myself we would go on the Bournemouth balloon, however, it wasn’t meant to be as it disappeared back in June, never to return.

I was so disappointed with the state of the restaurant, food and service that we haven’t been back since – until now. On Thursday we headed to the Bournemouth Pizza Express restaurant which is set in the beautiful old Post Office building in central Bournemouth and our experience… Continue Reading “Pizza Express Bournemouth #PizzaExpressFamily”
