Bournemouth or Shoreham?

Post by GaryS » Sun Jul 25, 2010 8:26 pm

Which would you choose?
Never been to Shoreham before but not been to the Air Festival either...mainly due to the traffic nightmare.

Bournemouth is a good show, to avoid the parking and traffic, just park in poole and walk along the seafront the few miles.

Alternately there's Richmond Hill car park (B/mth) or the Sovereign Centre car Park (Boscombe) and then it's a short walk down to the beach.

B/mth airshow is good (free), but the sun is in your face all day. The clifftops provide a good view but a decent lens is required from there.
As the display line is straight you can get close to the action by going down onto the shore.

Both Shoreham and B/mth often share displays so it's likely they'll both have similar stuff over the weekend with acts transiting along the coast from show to show.

I've not been to the Bournemouth show, but the sun at Shoreham is also a bit tricky (if photography is your thing).
