In 1810 Lewis Tregonwell visited during a holiday at Mudeford to show the area to his wife, Henrietta. She allegedly fell in love with it and persuaded Lewis to buy land for a mansion, plus cottages for the use of staff and friends, to the west of the Bourne Stream. The Queen Mother's ancestor, Mary Eleanor Bowes, then the richest heiress in England, lived at Pokesdown in the 1790s to escape the clutches of her second husband. This set the tone for Bournemouth, which turned into a select retreat for the wealthy.

Bournemouth's growth accelerated with the arrival of the railway, becoming a recognised town in 1870. The gardens date back to at least the eighteenth century, when the Lord of the Manor enclosed a few acres of land as a hunting ground and built a lodge, Decoy House, which stood in what is now The Square.

Today Bournemouth is a vibrant and stimulating town providing holidays and relaxation on its 7 mile stretch of sandy beaches for many tens of thousands of people each year.
