“Poole Harbour”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Poole Harbour is a MUST SEE, well the opposite side of the river anyway. There you will see some of the WORLDS most expensive boats "Sun Seekers", it's where they're built.

Poole itself is for the most (best) part fairly quaint and "oldy worldy" it even boast an "Old Sweet & Candy shop" now that worth a visit in it's self !!!

“Around Poole Harbour”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Poole Harbour is the second largest natural harbour in the world. There is so much to do in and around the harbour, it is a water sports mecca from kayaking to kite surfing and jet skiing to water skiing that's without mentioning, sailing, fishing, motor boating swimming and walking. Without a doubt one of the greatest places to visit in the UK. There is just so much to do, see and enjoy

“Quaint little shops along the pier.”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Lovely to stroll along with many shops, pubs and restaurants. Look at the magnificent boats, ships and yachts docked on the pier. Good sitting possibilities.
