The seat was based upon the eastern part of the seaside resort of Bournemouth and the neighbouring town of Christchurch, which were united for parliamentary purposes in 1950. The constituency was in the south west of the historic county of Hampshire in South East England.
It was held by the Conservative Party for the entirety of its existence, with the party gaining more than half of the votes cast at each election.
