Poole in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... island etc. They often have biker shows on the quay and if you happen to visit when one is on you will be amazed by the vast amount of bikes that are lined up on the front! Just a short walk from the quay is Poole park which has pedal boats and several parks and is a beautiful place to sit and have a picnic. Upton House is a beautiful old building with fantastic grounds to walk around, it's maybe not an ideal place for kids to go (they will get bored) but it's lovely to see and walk around the grounds. Sandbanks is approx half way between Poole and Bournemouth and I warn you to only visit it if you are prepared to feel like a millionair... more

If I had it my way then my family would be moving down the Poole as it is such a lovely place to live, but a big price tag comes with it for property! Poole is situated on the south coast in Dorset and is just a short drive from Bournemouth. The main places I would suggest visiting is Poole quay, Sandbanks, Upton House & the Dolphin shopping centre. Poole Quay is a beautiful stretch with bars, restaurants and there are lots of different boat trips to Brownsea island etc. They often have biker shows on the quay and if you happen to visit when one is on you will be amazed by the vast amount of bikes that are lined up on the front!

Poole for the summer - yes, Poole in the winter - no! Poole is a beautiful area of dorset, I lived there for a few years and only a few miles away from it all of my life so know the area very well indeed. The area has a large shopping area which all year round is superb with coffee shops to rest and chill out in, a huge selection of shops and some unique shops also. Only a few minutes walk down to poole quay and the scenery is exquisite, with the harbour, boats galore and of course the famous boat maker sunseeker in full view, so a must for all boat lovers. In the summer poole and the quay are at their finest. The quay if full of ... Read the complete review

The Local Authority's tag line is "Poole, it's a beautiful place". And it really is! Poole has been my home town for the past 20 or so years and it never fails to make me happy living here :-) There is so much to say about Poole that several books have been written about the area. With that in mind, I will tell you a couple of things about Poole Quay, the heart of the town. Poole Quay is a fantastic place, lively and bustling in both the summer and winter months with great restaurants, museums and beautiful scenery. Boat trips run to surrounding areas during the summer months and I would particularly reccommend taking a trip to ... Read the complete review
