Why Stay Here ?
The harbour is the largest natural one in Europe, and the second largest in the world after Sydney, but it fell out of use in the 19th century as ships became larger during the Industrial Revolution, and its waters were no longer deep enough. Consequently the town’s prosperity began to decline, until it was revived by tourism in the 20th century.
During the Second World War it was one of the departure points for the D-Day landings in Normandy. The headquarters of the RNLI are based in the town and visitors can tour the lifeboat station on the quay.
There are plenty of things to see and do in Poole and the surrounding area. The conservation area of the town, where the hospital was originally sited in a Victorian building, is an interesting place to explore on foot. Here visitors will find the town’s museum with its stunning modern entrance leading into a converted 19th century warehouse.
The museum illustrates the history of the area and its people, as well as that of important buildings such as the hospital. Adjacent to the museum are the medieval town cellars where an extensive archive of local history is stored.
A walk around the busy Quay area is always interesting and if visitors are lucky they might see the elegant structure of the Twin Sails Lifting Bridge opening to let a boat or yacht through into the harbour. Boats leave from the Quay to go and see Brownsea Island.
The three miles of beach and seafront are popular destinations throughout the year whether for walking, swimming, sunbathing or taking part in water sports. The beaches, including Sandbanks, have golden sand and are patrolled regularly to keep them clean and safe. In the town centre there are plenty of shopping opportunities, such as the Dolphin centre, as well as the famous Poole Pottery.
The holiday resort of Bournemouth can easily be reached as well. Bournemouth boasts a large selection of seafront hotels and cheap bed and breakfast accommodations.
