Port of Poole

About Poole, Guide and Tourist Attractions
(Poole, Dorset, England, UK)

Poole is located on the south coast of England. Its beautiful location and great beaches make it a popular summer destination for both locals and international travellers.

What to do in Poole

Poole's main attraction is its beaches; however, there are still plenty of other options if you get tired of sunbathing.

There are many museums, restaurants, shops and historical sites to visit. Alternatively, tourists can go down to the marina to view all of the yachts that are docked at the harbour.

Tourist Attractions

The golden beaches are where you will find many water activities such as windsurfing, sailing, sunbathing and swimming. In the Poole Quay area, you can wander around the shops, outdoor cafés and restaurants, which all overlook the port. The Waterfront Museum is also located in the Quay area and informs visitors about Poole's maritime history.

More options include exploring The Lighthouse, Poole's Centre for the Arts. It hosts theatre performances, film shows and exhibitions. Brownslea Island is a short boat trip away and is an interesting nature reserve located on a small island in the port. At the reserve, you'll find a restaurant, secluded beaches and walking trails. Across the harbour is the Purbeck peninsula, which has some ancient castles to visit and more beautiful beaches.
