Why Stay Here ?

accommodation in poole dorset ukThe 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.
