POOLE is a vibrant south-coast town with a rich maritime history on the shores of the UK’s biggest natural harbour. Popular with water sports enthusiasts, the Town’s population of 150,000 swells during the summer months as holidaymakers head for the seven miles of golden beaches, stretching from the internationally famous Sandbanks peninsula to Bournemouth Pier. West of the Harbour mouth lie Dorset’s World Heritage Jurassic Coast and the Purbeck Hills – offering excellent walking in fabulous countryside.

Poole abuts the resort town of Bournemouth to the east, and lies 115 miles south-west of London. A direct rail service connects Poole to London Waterloo in approximately 2 hours. The wild beauty of the New Forest National Park is just 40 minutes away by car, to the east.

Poole’s historic Georgian Old Town offers a wealth of restaurants and bars amid cobbled streets, and a fascinating museum. Poole Quay is a popular spot to relax with a drink whilst watching the yachts and ferries coming and going. It is also host to many cultural and music events throughout the summer season. Poole is home to Sunseeker – the World’s most luxurious boat builder and many examples of their stunning boats are moored opposite. Local ferries take visitors direct from the Quay to beautiful Brownsea Island, the National Trust Nature Reserve and home to the red squirrel at the mouth of Poole Harbour.

Poole’s pedestrianised High Street links the Quay to the extensive retail facilities of the covered Dolphin Shopping Centre. Poole’s Lighthouse Arts Centre is home to the acclaimed Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and is a popular theatre and concert venue.

Waterside walks and cycle paths link Poole Quay to Baiter, Whitecliff and Poole parks – offering idyllic Sunday strolls and bike rides around the picturesque Harbour, with adventure play areas, sports facilities and cafes along the way.
