Things to do in  Poole

Welcome to Poole

Adjacent to Bournemouth and on the edge of Dorset’s UNESCO-listed Jurassic Coast, Poole is also home to the second-largest natural harbor in the world. That maritime significance has played a key role in its history, from early Viking invasions to D-Day crossings and its present-day Channel ferry routes. There are lots of things to in Poole in the summer in particular, when crowds come to relax on the Blue Flag–certified Sandbanks beach; wander the bustling Quay or charming Old Town; see the ruins of Corfe Castle; or set out on a coastal ramble.
