Poole Ferry Port


Poole Overview

Poole, located in Dorset on the south coast of England is a beautiful coastal town and seaport. Blessed with the world's second largest natural harbour and magnificent beaches, Poole is nicknamed as the "St. Tropez of the South Coast".
Poole town centre is concentrated around the old quay with many cosy restaurants and bars serving local fish and other seafood within the area overlooking the harbour. Poole makes an ideal summer destination with beautiful clean beaches at Sandbanks, one of the top 10 beaches in Europe to hold the Blue Flag since 1980s.
Whatever the weather, Poole offers a number of other attractions which include "Cockle trail", a walk back into the history following brass plaques, the Waterfront museum, Poole Pottery factory and outlet which has been operating in Poole for over 100 years as well as the unmissable Brownsea Island which is one of the National Trust properties and is maintained as a traffic free island apart from people being ferried to and from the island from Poole harbour. The island is treasured for its rich wild life and peaceful walks.
And if you are prepared to go a little further from Poole, you can drive through the fantastic Jurassic coast with exquisite sceneries and coves in Dorset, classed as a World Heritage site and also visit the Monkey World just 30 minutes drive away from Poole.
Poole is also perfectly suited for adrenalin filling water sports such as windsurfing, kite boarding, sailing and kayaking or alternatively relax and picnic on the beaches.
