Poole

Famous for its natural harbour, the town of Poole is one of Dorset's most popular tourist destinations. One of its main attractions is the Quay, which is lined with pubs and restaurants, so you can dine in style while enjoying views of the ocean, and watch the yachts and fishing boats in the busy marina. The quayside is also home to the renowned Poole Pottery studio and the Poole Museum is just a few minutes' walk away, located on the high street. While visiting the town, you can also relax on one of its lovely sandy beaches, explore the historic Old Town area or see a production at the Lighthouse arts centre. Visitors can also take a ferry from the Quay and spend the day on Brownsea Island, a wildlife haven famous for its red squirrel population.
