A day out in Bournemouth with National Express and the ODDBODS

On Wednesday we were invited to become a tourist in our home town with National Express and the ODDBODS, hosted by children’s TV Presenter Nigel Clarke.

In its place is the all new Rockreef which will appeal to children age 5 and up through to adults with indoor climbing walls, a highline, pier cave and the pier Zip. The building on the pier may still look like the old theatre from the outside but it has changed on the inside……..and for …
