Favourite Building
  • The Albany block on the East Cliff, such a fascinating block you can see it from either side of the beach, the tallest in Bournemouth, they don't them that close to sea any more!
  • Moon on the Square
  • The Town Hall in Bournemouth.
  • Abbey National Tower, nothing that beatiful or standout colourful, but everyihtng else is either a garishly painted shop or a concrete overlord of a building. Cream and black is slightly more orginal.
  • the old firestation
  • k1 terrace rd
  • k,house terrace rd awsome building
  • probably castlepoint
  • Lansdowne Campus of the college. I study catering there. the feel of the college is great, U can be your self and have a laugh. the building is more than 90 years old but still looks great
  • the one i live in and sleep in and keep my ride

  • Zurich with the golden Eagle and Fire 107.6FM radio station as its underground.
  • Not a building as such --- the famous grave yard... a hit with all the youngers drinking their special brew... i remember the days very well!!!!
  • Ahhhh PORTMAN!
  • Lansdowne clock tower, branded an eyesore when it opened on May 25 1919, but little did they know that 80-odd years later it would be about the most pleasant building left among a cornucopia of drab, grey, angular concrete edifices.
  • Odeon cinema
  • The Pavilion
  • K-HOUSE TERRACE RD bournemouth.
  • The arcade in Westbourne with it's cracked and pot-holed tiled floor, the Royal Bath coz way back when I worked there as a hall porter and what used to be the Gaumont Cinema -now the Odeon. I saw Star Wars there as a 7 yr old - happy memories!
  • The new portland building is going to create a sick spot.
  • Abbey Life Building, or whatever it's called these days!
  • Dean Court - the only place to be seen on a Saturday afternoon
