The town has a long history, originating from a Roman road from which it was built upon (known as King Street), and also from the excellent water supply sourced locally from natural springs at the Wellhead Gardens. The name “Bourne” derives from the Anglo-Saxon meaning “water” or “stream” and is a common name for a settlement.

Bourne is now a growing and bustling market town with many amenities, including the popular Bourne Woods, a large leisure centre, outdoor swimming pool, snooker and sports bar, museums, a good range of restaurants, cafes and public houses, several gyms (including a ladies only gym) and a great selection of shops and businesses.
