Poole is a stunning seaside town found in Dorset. It is surrounded by award-winning Blue Flag beaches which means they are some of the safest and cleanest in the UK. The town boasts a beautiful harbour, which is the second largest in the world, just after the famous Sydney Harbour.
Poole is ideal for commuters and families as there is easy access to London and surrounding cities, but property prices are cheaper, and you get the Jurassic Coast and New Forest National Park right on your doorstep. An express train to London Waterloo from Poole can reach the capital in just under two hours, and calls at Bournemouth, Brockenhurst, Southampton and Winchester along the way. Towns to the west of Poole such as Dorchester and Weymouth are also easily accessed via train. There are plenty of busses with routes to nearby towns and for international travel Bournemouth Airport is just a stone’s throw away. Ferry services also run at Poole harbour, connecting Poole to major European ports.
