We went in October and everything on the pier was closed. It has mini golf but we couldn;t use it as the office was closed.

A pleasant pier that allows you to enjoy the beauty of the sea and the surrounding beach. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Boscombe Pier is an ideal place to spend some time enjoying the beach and sea views, very little traffic noise to disturb you, some snacks available at the entrance.
