Boscombe Conservative Club 2 Ĺ miles outside Bournemouth was built in 1904 – we have photographs of the Earl or Malmesbury laying the foundation stone to what was then named Boscombe Conservative Club“Boscombe Working Men’s Conservative Club,  The club itself must have existed somewhere else as we have recently found minute books dated from the July 4th 1898.

We are situated at an excellent location just on the corner of the Boscombe bus station right next to the Sovereign Shopping Centre, yards away from the pedestrian shopping precinct of Christchurch Road and Ĺ mile from Boscombe beach and pier.

At the end of the last century and beginning of this one Boscombe used to be the ‘in’ place to live – thanks to the playboy Prince Albert and his love of Lilly Langtry and the seaside.  We are surrounded with streets of beautiful Victorian houses, sadly now mostly converted to flats and streets of small Victorian 2 up 2 down cottages which would have housed the servants and trades people who serviced the idle rich of the Victorian era.

Bournemouth is still one of the best holiday resorts in the country with seven miles of Blue Flag standard beaches; we have two piers and a mild climate.

We welcome visitors from all over the country to our club under the Inter Affiliation Ticket scheme run by the Association of Conservative Clubs Limited and offer temporary membership for anyone staying for a holiday.

Our web site at www.boscombeconclub.co.uk which gives a run down of the clubs facilities and a month’s entertainment guide.
