Situated on the South Coast of Dorset, Poole is a perfect choice for a holiday with unforgettable memories. This bustling resort town is known for having Europe’s largest natural harbour, award-winning blue flag beaches, a vibrant quayside, and a wealth of history.

Poole sits on the famous Jurassic Coast World Heriatge Site, a 95 mile stretch of stunning coastline packed full of interesting geology and fossils. The popular Sandbanks Beach is a short drive from the town centre and has kept blue flag status for over 29 years. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a typical beach day out, with golden sands, breathtaking views, and activities like crazy golf, and slackening to keep you entertained.

Poole is home to over 25 varieties of watersports: the shallow water are perfect for a number of activities, including wind-surfing, sailing and even powerboat rides. The Quayside is the perfect place to relax, and sit back in one of the many water-side cafe’s and restaurants, watching the fishing boats, ships, and yachts make their way into the harbour. A short walk from the quay is the beautiful Poole Park, with a number of fun family attractions.

Just outside of the town is the Tower Park Entertainment Centre – with Ten Pin Bowling, Pool, a cinema, and the Splashdown Waterpark.

Delve deep into the heart of the old town where sea captains and pirates once stood and immerse yourself in Poole’s fascinating history. For accommodation, there is a great selection of hotels, B&Bs, self-catered properties and more.
