Introducing Beales of Bournemouth

Hello and welcome to Beales of Bournemouth,

New to the company I am proud to take the mantle of Store Director leading an established team who's aim is to offer outstanding customer service and a memorable shopping experience

Established in 1881 our store has amazing heritage playing a part in many Dorset homes over the years as both a major employer and purveyor of goods

Did you know Beales of Bournemouth was the first Department store in the UK to have a real life Father Christmas?

We have something for everyone, an amazing cosmetic and perfumery floor including Mac and Bobbi Brown, which are exclusive in Bournemouth.

For all your wardrobe needs we have 3 floors of Ladies, Menswear and shoes. For the home, an extensive selection of homewares, linens and furniture.
We have the brand new addition of our amazing Coats haberdashery shop and not forgetting the kids, come and pay a visit to our Toy shop.

When you need a break from all that shopping, sit and relax in our 5th floor restaurant with panoramic views or visit our Coffee shop complete with an ice cream parlour

We look forward to welcoming you in store.

Nicky Washington, Store Director and Gareth McKechnie & Samia Walker, Deputy Store Directors 


What our customers say

"My wife and I have been shopping at Beales in Bournemouth since 1956 and have always found it to be the best, thank you."

"I have grown up always visiting Beales and have always enjoyed the experience which marks it out from other department stores.”
