This hour long trip is well worth doing with an interesting commentary. The little islands around the harbour offer a nice view and some of the facts about them are very interesting. You are able to have tea, coffee and use toilets on the boat,...More

Poole harbour is lovely, we were lucky to be here whilst the weather was warm and there s plenty of places to sit outside and have a drink whilst admiring the yachts

The most beautiful view you can find anywhere. Lovely and shallow near Sandbaks for kayaks, paddle boards etc. Lovely walk along Whitecliff, Baiter and Poole Quay. Excellent for kayaking from Baiter slipway.

Lovely area for a walk with nice views. Good choice of pubs and restaurants too! Plenty to do here, shame we weren't there for longer.

Great natural harbour area with great views and several sightseeing boat trips to brownsea island. Many restaurants and watering holes. All on the level if disabled. Large nearby shoping areas within striking distance. Great museum.

Used the harbour to board the ferry to Jersey. Lousy signposting for cars using the ferry but nicely laid out once I overcame that

A lovely place for a wonder, lots of places to stop for a drink or food. The harbour is amazing lots of very large yachts to admire. Loved the Sea music sculpture. Boat trips to Brownsea Island run from here.

Lots to see and do in and around Poole. No need to rush. Take your time and enjoy the surroundings. A ferry trip is a must.
