The town is of two halves, one dated looking I would guess built in the 1960's, the other dating back to the 17th century and beyond as you approach the quayside, which was once a thriving sea port, but still very much in commercial use today as a Channel ferry port.
Poole is also the home of Sunseeker Yachts. Unfortunately, these days they are the reserve of billionaires, way out of reach of regular boating enthusiasts.
No trip to Poole would be complete without a visit to the world famous pottery on the Quay. Very much reduced to just a sales room these days, although a small amount of bespoke pottery is still hand made on site.
Back to the site for a relaxing beer by mid afternoon.
