“Largest natural harbour in Europe”

Reviewed August 24, 2015

Poole Harbour has an area of approximately 36 square kilometres (14 sq mi)[2] and is claimed to be the largest natural harbour in Europe.
The ferry to Brownsea Island takes you on a tour of the waterways, and supplies interesting information about Poole Harbour.
The Quay is full of shops, cafes, and restaurants, and an enjoyable day can be spent here.

What a lovely place Poole is. Haven't been her since I was a very small child and I don't remember it at all. Lively and fantastic views. We were here as part of the annual Friday night quay for my car event. It was amazing. A lovely sunny warm evening. Loads of people wandering around. Plenty of bars, pubs, fish n chip shops. A really lovely British coastal resort. We will return for a longer visit next summer probably in June time.

At night the harbour is buzzing with entertainment, one of the nights we were their they had loads of vintage pre 1980 cars they were awesome. Another night fireworks. Never been to Poole before but would highly recommend a visit day or night.

If you head down during the summer they have all different things going on. There are some nice pubs and easy parking. You can also catch a few different cruises from the harbour as well.
