Activities/Attractions: Famous for its seven miles of golden beaches, beautiful parks and gardens, Bournemouth blends the contemporary with the traditional in a manner that allows something for everyone. The cliff tops make for a lovely walk, summer and winter alike. Smell the air, listen for the Sea Gulls, hear the roar of the waves in the winter and the sound of children laughing in the summer. Bournemouth comes alive in the summer and has a very special majesty all her own in the winter.

  • Bournemouth Pier has been named the Best Beach in the UK
  • With over 250 restaurants Bournemouth is a young town and is as diverse in its people as anywhere else
  • Popular with students from abroad learning English, others at the Bournemouth University
  • The elderly love it here as the weather is milder
  • It has the UK's 5th largest gay community with The Triangle being a part of town with various gay bars and night clubs
  • Families love it here because it offers a more peaceful lifestyle than city living
  • For the golfer and gardener, it's a paradise
  • Bournemouth parks are a delight and there are many of them. A visit to the famous Compton Acres is well worth it, as they really are stunning year round
  • There are many fine Victorian buildings and Boscombe Arcade, just a few minutes walk from Hamilton Hall, is a fine example
  • For the photographer, there are pictures to be found everywhere you look

In her winter slumber, some say it's the best time to visit Bournemouth ... the scenery is stunning in its autumn and winter colours and the bright clear sky - crisp mornings and bright sunsets, are stunning by the ocean. Bournemouth even caters for the naturist, with Britain's finest and certainly most beautiful naturist beach at Studland, and on a sunny day there is nowhere more beautiful.

Christchurch, the ancient town with a 1,000 year old priory, is just a 20 minute drive away and is a wonderful place to feed the swans, visit the ancient priory or walk over Hengisbury Head and hunt for fossils. The New Forrest is just a 20 minute drive from Hamilton Hall and affords miles and miles of deep dark forest  hiding small villages and ancient towns with mythical histories of witches and pagan rites.  Deer, ponies and many wild animals live here and  it is easy to find solitude on a summers day.

"'Absolutely Fabulous, Sweetie. The entire experience was a joy. What a wonderful group of people. What a enthralling workshop weekend. What a bloody good laugh it all was. And most of all, Thank you to you John, for creating such a space and keeping the energies so balanced, harmonious and peaceful. I MOST CERTAINLY will return."

"I felt like I was having dinner with friends in a private house, rather than in a hotel with strangers. I have never experienced such warmth and companionship so quickly from people who offered so much.   Many need spend a few days at Hamilton Hall to get an 'attitude adjustment' and then maybe the world would be a little friendlier."

"Fab Fab Fab. Eat like a hog. Slept like a log. Recharged batteries I didn't even know I had. Thanks guys."

"A beautiful sanctuary with a wonderful peaceful atmosphere. Thank you very much. I'll be back"

"Amazing, truly amazing. How you can take an old Victorian house that was an old people's home, and convert it into such a sanctuary for inner peace,  is beyond me. I felt so at peace as soon as I entered."

"3rd time here. Excellent yet again."

"Just couldn't go without thanking you for a very awe inspiring weekend with you. You're a star mate - mad - but absolutely brilliant. I found your hotel service, food etc. to be top notch and I just wanted you to know that mate. I will be back - no not Arnie - just plain old me - I hope to come down maybe in the spring. Take care John and once again many thanks."

"Is there some award I can put you up for, some nomination for good and worthy work provided to the gay community, something to show others just how hugely your work is appreciated, valued and needed? After attending both your workshops I am surprised the gay media are not falling over themselves to write editorials and help promote your work.  Well done John. An Oscar is on its way to you."

"My partner and I went to Hamilton Hall in April and had a fantastic time. John does a terrific job of introducing lots of ideas and experiences and creating an environment where the men get to connect. Don't put off your trip for too long."

"The weekend spent with you was superb and everyone attending was blown away by your kindness, support and nurturing feel, aimed at those who a great many in society turn away from and damn. Your open manner, honest and approachable attitude and kindness, leaves a great many in need of some time at Hamilton Hall to realise just how they could be behaving towards others."
