Bridge in Bournemouth, The Hotel Collingwood

Join our First for Bridge team and re-unite with fellow First for Bridge travellers for an end of Season Bridge get together in Bournemouth. We will take over the Collingwood Hotel, using all of its 52 bedrooms, and will play Bridge in the well-appointed Botanical Suite.

During this holiday we will offer two morning bridge seminars with our EBU qualified director, and we will have a usual First for Bridge varied programme offering daily afternoon and evening bridge sessions with Masterpoints and prizes awarded.

Our hotel is conveniently located just 0.3 miles from the centre of Bournemouth which is a great place for Christmas shopping, and you can enjoy one of the many shows in the Pavilion or the International Centre. Those of you who are familiar with Dorset will know it is a hilly region, but this is easily overcome as the hotel is on the number 50 bus route into the town, taxis are readily available, and there is free parking at the hotel for those who opt to travel by car.

If the winter sun chooses to shine down on us, then keen walkers can take advantage of the numerous coastal walks this region has to offer, and the rugged beauty of the coastline leading to Ludworth Cove, Brownsea Island, and Studland Beach to name just a few places.

PLEASE NOTE: the bridge room is accessed by stairs so it is necessary for you to manage steps for entry to the bridge room
