Poole - Dorset Towns & Villages

Poole is very much a tourist attraction - whether it be for beaches, shopping or nightlife, you will certainly discover something for everyone!

The views across Poole Harbour - Europe’s largest natural harbour - are spectacular, and this designated area of outstanding beauty is home to many species of wildlife. The Old Town area, set just behind Poole Quay, has a rich heritage dating to before the Tudor period, where you can enjoy a stroll back in time along the cobbled streets and discover some fascinating architecture.

If shopping is close to your heart then head for the heart of Poole to the Dolphin Shopping Centre. Within its 465,000 square feet you’ll find all the leading High Street names in an indoor centre that makes shopping a pleasure whatever the weather. Directly across the walkway is Poole Arts Centre, which provides an excellent choice of theatre, cinema and concert halls.

Poole certainly is a town that offers something that little bit different and is well worth more than a passing visit.
