“Great to walk around”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

I love walking around Poole Harbour both night and day. There is always plenty to see and we also like to walk right down to the Sunseeker factory to have a nosey at the impressive yachts that are moored up outside.

“Worth a stop”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

An interesting harbour where you stroll along the quay past working boats, ferry boats and opposite the glamorous Sunseeker boats and their factory. A little further down there is an RNLI station and public toilets. There is so much history here, a plaque on the wall reminds visitors that in June 1944, 300 little boats left from here en route to Normandy for the D day landings. The oldest pub in Poole, seems a virtual time warp, and somewhere to seek refreshment. Car parking is good value, with a multi storey only a couple of minutes walk. A pleasant few hours spent.

“A uqayside with character”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

We've visited Poole over the last forty years with relations living in the area. The old busy port has been transformed into a bustling marina with plenty of leisure and see going cargo activity to make it really interesting. There are many pubs along the quayside and just as many nice eating and coffee stops to spend the day enjoying the activities and people watching.
