Poole Quay And Old Town

Today we woke to yet another glorious warm sunny day, and our plan was to visit Poole. There is a bus stop just outside the site entrance and the number 40 is the hourly service into town, with a day rover ticket being cheaper than a return for me at £4.10. Margaret of course used her granny pass.

From Poole bus station the rover ticket can be used to explore the beaches at Bournemouth, Sandbanks and Canford Cliffs if you wish.

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.
