The town centre has notable Victorian architecture and the 202-foot spire of St Peter's Church, one of three Grade 1 listed churches in the borough, is a local landmark.

The town is also a regional centre of business, home of the Bournemouth International Centre or BIC, and a financial sector that is worth more than 1,000 million in gross value added.
