Bournemouth ( (listen)) is a coastal resort town on the south coast in the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole borough of Dorset, England. The town had a population of 183,491 at the 2011 census making it the largest town in the county; the town is part of the South East Dorset conurbation, which has a population of 465,000.

The town was formerly governed under Hampshire: it is equidistant, 24 miles (39 km), between Dorchester to the west and Southampton to the east. Founded in 1810 by Lewis Tregonwell, in an area of deserted heathland occasionally visited by fishermen and smugglers, as a health resort. It became a town in 1870, with growth from the arrival of the railway. Following the local government reorganisation in 1974 the town was governed by Dorset County Council. The borough gained unitary authority in 1997, it remains under Dorset's ceremonial county functions and emergency services. In April 2019, the borough was replaced by the current borough, also with unitary authority, governing the town, Poole, Christchurch and surrounding areas.

Victorian architecture is notable in town centre. The 202-foot (62 m) spire of St Peter's Church, one of three Grade I listed churches in the borough, is a local landmark. The town's location has made it a popular destination for tourists, attracting over five million visitors annually with its beaches and popular nightlife. It is also a regional centre of business, home of the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) and a financial sector that is worth more than £1 billion in gross value added.
