Hitchhiking out

North towards Salisbury, or in order to go West towards Bristol (A338)

Head to the Cooper Dean Roundabout near Bournemouth Hospital. On the opposite side of the Wessex Way to the Toby Carvery there's a bus stop on the slip road where cars join the dual carriageway. It's an ideal spot to wait for a lift to Salisbury, and if you can get to the A36 on the west side of Salisbury you should be able to find a lift to Bristol.
