A Day Spent In Poole

      12 Comments on A Day Spent In Poole

Poole is a large coastal town and seaport which is in the county of Dorset, on the south coast of England. On our way to Swanage , our bus passed through a part of this coastal town and it was so beautiful that we decided to check it the next day.

So the next day we woke up and saw it was a rainy day. We were almost thinking of cancelling our plans as the weather was really bad. But we had two options cancel the plan and get bored or brave the weather and see a new place. We chose the latter of course.

So after breakfast we walked from our apartment down to the Bournemouth square. There were very few people on the street. Few mad people like us who were braving  the cold rain and strong winds. We  weren’t even sure of the right bus number that would take us to Poole. So we asked a few people and then waited for the bus. It was so cold that my cheeks turned pink and I almost wanted to run to the warmth of my apartment.

Finally the bus arrived and I was happy to get away from the rain. It took us approx 30-45 mins to reach Poole.

It was still raining so we decided to check the Dolphin Shopping Center. It had lots of shops, restaurants etc. We visited  our favorite store PRIMARK  and were totally wasting our time there but  who doesn’t like shopping eh? 😉


By the time we finished it was lunch time, so we had lunch and then to our delight we saw that though it was cloudy the sun was out and the rain had stopped! Thank God!


So we decided to explore Poole and go to the Poole Quay by foot! Yes it was quite a long walk but we didn’t mind and we were exploring this lovely town. There were few tourists and locals as it was raining earlier.


After what seemed like an endless walk, we finally reach the Poole Quay. I was amazed to see all the boats. It was such an amazing sight. We clicked a few pictures as usual and then sat for sometime and admired the view ( rested my aching feet). After that it was time to go back.

We didn’t do much due to the weather, but it was worth the visit. I would definitely want to visit again and check more activities here.

Distance from Bournemouth: 10 kilometers (6 miles).

How to reach: We took bus from Bournemouth Square. You can find more details on how to get to Poole here

Thank you for reading. If you haven’t been to  Poole, then you should definitely visit soon. Cheers and Happy Travels! 🙂

    Some people watch the rain and some others get wet.I really think the latter is more fun as you get to explore,learn more and have fun at the same time.I never carry an umbrella when it rains I always get wet.I have nothing to comment on anything specific but I have to admit that the pictures you put up made me extremely envious of the fun you’re having.This does happen when you love travelling and exploring but you’re forced to attend classes ,study and do assignments.Life of a student who loves travelling can be miserable at times.i really love the house with the board oriel written on it

    Poole is my hometown! You seem to have visited quite a while ago because that Burger King has closed down long time ago. I enjoy the quay very much, there are some really nice coffee shops alongside it where I love to go for brunch on Sundays. From Dolphin Centre to the Quay is only a short 10 minutes walk on High Street, you must have got lost if you said it took a long time for you to get there.

    Wow, I never heard about Poole town and it seemed to be really a great place to amble around while enjoying the beautiful scenery. The building structures are intricately done with so much art to offer to everyone. I also love the fact that you’ve strolled around and just enjoy what it has to offer. The photos of you with the stunning Yacht as a backdrop is really beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing your journey with us.

    Poole is a charming seaside town. I knew about the place owing to a business association however have not been able to visit it. The place has a certain old world charm and aura which is so typical of seaside towns. Would love to experience the tranquil life around this town some day.

    I remember stopping off at Poole when I went to Blackpool on the train. Didn’t really explore Poole much but wish I did after reading this. Some great pictures! The location of that burger king lol!

    I saw an image that had some triangular flags. What are those for? They seemed much like the Buddhist little flags. Another thing that I noted was some images that had ship masts. It took me to my school days when I used to read stories about ship wrecks etc…

    Poole looks like an amazing sea side town.Your pictures are great. After rains the whole place is giving the feel of being extra clean and fresh. Would love to explore this place for sure. Thanks for sharing.
