Bournemouth, a watering-place of Hampshire, come much into vogue of late as a health resort. It is noted for its sands, for its air, which, while not relaxing, is soft and agreeable to most invalids, for the beautiful scenery of the neighbourhood and the pine-covered valley in which it lies. It has two piers, an aquarium, winter garden, town hall, sanatorium, and several hospitals. Godwin, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Mary Shelley are buried in the churchyard of St. Peter's, Bournemouth.
