Poole Ferry Port

Laying on the south coast of England, Poole is a popular coastal town in the county of Dorset. The port is used as a gateway to France’s northern coast with the crossing to Cherbourg, as well as sailings to Guernsey and Jersey.

What is there to do in Poole?

Anyone with a penchant for exploring the great outdoors will love Poole. Like any coastal town, Poole’s prominent activity tends to revolve around the shoreline; the harbour is a vibrant hub of energy with an array of cafes and shops dotted around the waterfront. The beaches are an obvious attraction when visiting the seaside resort, especially in the summer when the fine temperature lends itself to an afternoon sunbathing and swimming. Sandbank beach is regarded as one of the best beaches in the UK – the whole area is incredibly clean and the toilets are ideally located.

Away from the water, several landmarks and sights are prominent around the town centre. The RNLI Memorial Sculpture is one of the highlights when making a Poole itinerary, which is particularly beautiful when the sun reflects off the impressive image. After a stretch of sightseeing, the many parks are perfect for whiling away a few hours in leisurely conditions, and the Farmer Palmer’s Farm Park is a very enjoyable day out for the family.

How do you get around Poole?

Buses run throughout the town centre, heading to all major suburbs in the area. Road links are good for driving around the town, and the centre is ideal for travelling by foot. Alternatively, there are taxis readily available and Uber has also began operating in Poole.
