What to do in Poole

About Poole

The coastal town of Poole is the world’s second-biggest natural harbour. In fact, in the 1700s, the city was one of the most active ports in the country. Later on, in 1944, the port played a role in D-Day landings. Today, it functions as a ferry terminal to mainland Europe. Book a hotel in Poole close to Sandbanks, one of the best beaches in England. Or, you can opt to stay near Poole Harbour if you’re keen to harness the wind, go for a ride on a motorboat or paddle in the water. A large part of the harbour is fringed by nature reserves that protect the delicate ecosystem in the sandy coastline and habitats of deer and birds.
