UK travel information

A tourist resort and seaport, built around a natural harbour, and boasting family-friendly beaches, A bustling town with some interesting historical architecture, Poole’s Guildhall is one of the finest examples of the listed buildings, now housing the local court. Cross-Channel passenger and freight services operate from here, but a wander round the town before getting onboard is well worthwhile.

Cruises around the harbour operate from the Quay, where the old warehouses now house a mixture of pubs, restaurants and apartments. Brownsea Island nature reserve lies just offshore, delightful to visit on a local boat trip, but if you’d rather stay on terra firma, relax on one of the award-winning beaches, among the best in Britain.
