Poole Harbour is a chilled out place to have a nice pint "PLENTY OF GOOD OLD FASHIONED BRITISH PUBS AROUND THE QUAYSIDE"

“Watch the boats come in”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

It is a nice walk along the side of Poole Harbour. There are a few shops and cafes on the harbour side and you get to watch the boats coming in. The sunseeker boat yard is other the other side of the harbour so you can see all the fancy expensive boats of all sizes!

“Poole Waterfront”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Thought we would spend a few hours at Poole Harbour on a recent, non weekend, sunny evening before we travelled home to Kent. Unfortunately Poole has the worst road signage and road systems I have ever encountered anywhere in the world. One way streets that either dead end or take you back to where you started, and very poor road signage. I would not visit again.

“A great place to enjoy the boats and people watch”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

You can sit along the quay watching the peaceful waters of the sea while behind you there are pubs and all types of eating establishments.
There is a choice to suit everyone, and within a 5 min walk there are Burger king and McDonalds, so even the kids are happy.
So if you are in Poole you must see the Quay.
