Bournemouth East is a borough constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. It has elected Conservative MPs since its creation.

Boundaries

1974-1983: The County Borough of Bournemouth wards of Boscombe East, Boscombe West, King's Park, Moordown North, Moordown South, Queen's Park, Southbourne, and West Southbourne.

1983-1997: The Borough of Bournemouth wards of Boscombe East, Boscombe West, Central, East Cliff, Littledown, Moordown, Muscliff, Queen's Park, Southbourne, Strouden Park, and West Southbourne.

1997-2010: The Borough of Bournemouth wards of Boscombe East, Boscombe West, Littledown, Moordown, Muscliff, Queen’s Park, Southbourne, Strouden Park, and West Southbourne.

2010–present: The Borough of Bournemouth wards of Boscombe East, Boscombe West, East Cliff and Springbourne, East Southbourne and Tuckton, Littledown and Iford, Moordown, Queen’s Park, Strouden Park, Throop and Muscliff, and West Southbourne.

The constituency is based around the eastern portion of Bournemouth, in Dorset, including the Southbourne district at the border of Christchurch, Boscombe, Throop, and Queen's Park.

Following boundary changes enacted at the 2010 United Kingdom general election, the western boundary of the constituency changed so that it aligned with ward boundaries (which had changed since the constituency boundary changes of the 1990s). The main changes saw Eastcliff brought into the constituency with the loss of part of east Winton.

Bournemouth town centre was in this constituency from 1983 to 1997.
