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? 😉
DOLPHIN SHOPPING CENTRE
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
