Overall Guide : Poole Harbour is the 2nd largest natural harbour, after Sydney, in the world. There are ferry rides from the port to the beautiful island of Purbeck which is near. Splashdown is a huge indoor water park which has 12 exciting rides... more including the Spacebowl, a learner’s pool, and spas, sauna, the Tennessee Twister, the Louisiana Leap and more. The Waterfront Museum has exhibits which are two thousand years old and educate people about the history of Poole and its inhabitants. Sandbanks beach is a clean and well maintained beach which offers world class facilities such as dingy sailing, wind surfing and other water sports. The 3 mile stretche of sandy beaches have trendy bars and offer fantastic views of the harbour. Saint James Church is a huge parish church which is also known as the fisherman’s church and has an ancient tradition of bell ringing. Pool Quay is a boathouse museum which has started in 1865 and tells the history of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

Overall Guide : Poole, like so many other older towns, has changed to suit the whims of some 'incomer' councillors who do not have or cannot appreciate the history of Poole and its place in English life throughout the centuries. (Some councillors even... more live outside of the town's boundaries where their address might give them a 'superior' air. It should be a condition of election that a councillor remains a residentof the Borough to which thay are elected). The Town's development has been reasonably good and well thought out but there are some aspects that are the exact opposite - the new 'twin-sails' bridge being an example, where the 'icon' image has taken the place of practicality and common sense. It has been trouble ever since it was opened. A bridge would have been very much more suitable. The quay is in danger of being permanently spoilt by development. Even after saying all this it is still a town to enjoy. I was born here over 80 years ago and have precticed as an Architect for over 50 years. A town to be cherished and enjoyed - bring back boating on Poole Park Lake.

Overall Guide : In the past few years, l have been to Dorset over eight times. I never tired of always going into the town. The efforts made to make the harbour area more people friendly, is great. I'am coming down to Sandford... more in May, so l'll see you again. Don't worry, l will not fail to pay a visit to Poole. Where l always seem to get a bargain.
Not to be missed Sampling the fine fish meal , Learning tis history , Driving Directions
