Great community spirit down on the Quay, all the businesses work together and have many events every week: for example fireworks displays and bikers night. Great in the day and evenings especially for families and diners

We only spent 3 hours here having travelled from Highcliffe which really isn't enough time having been on the land train and then to The Courtyard for lunch.
It's not our first time here and it has become very modern with attractive appartments.
The next time we'll go on one of the boat trips.
There were some very smart looking yachts moored up.
I actually enjoyed this town more than Bournemouth.

Spent 4 fabulous days here windsurfing with Poole Watersports, who were very friendly & welcoming. Also ate in the cafés & relaxed on the beach. A really good destination! Mind, £12 for 6 hrs parking is a killer.

if you love bikes then tuesday evenings starting at 5pm is the place to see fab motorbikes and a friendly atmosphere. good local pubs, live music after 9pm. £1 entrance if your riding in on a bike if not free entry. Every tuesday from april to september. take away food available, fish and chips, hog roast. every week a bike wins bike of the night award. Good fun for families, bikers,tourists. i highly recommend this attraction if you are visiting poole. Also the thistle hotel does a BBQ and so does one of the pubs.A good cheap night out.
