One not to miss! A lazy 3 hours around the harbour and along the River Frome into Wareham. Lovely town. Boat company brilliant but could have done with a cushion to sit on!!

It's difficult to review something as huge as this. Lots of boating, Brownsea Island and various other attractions. Poole Quay has lots of pubs and cafes and, in the summer months, tuesday evenings are motorbike gatherings and fridays are for cars, often with a theme. Worth checking internet for details!

There are plenty of bars, restaurants & fast food. Although it is busy, it has a friendly atmosphere & suitable for adults & children. Tuesday night is "bike night" when 100's of bikers come to show their machines & Friday nights is "car night" aimed at different marques each week.
