About Poole

Poole is a city connected to Dorset in the south of England and is the second largest in the world after Sydney Harbor in Australia and the largest natural harbor in Europe.

Sandbanks Beach of the city, which is one of the most ideal destinations for weekend getaways in the UK, is famous for its fine sands and most expensive homes in the world. Sandbanks Beach, one of the UK’s best and busiest beaches, offers more than 25 water activities including windsurfing, jet-skiing, sailing and canoeing, and miles-long walks on the large coastal tracks. You can take a day trip to France by taking a ferry from the town known as the ‘jewellery of the south’, hosting a warm atmosphere with cute colorful motors departing from the port, small islands, blue flagged cool and shallow sea. There are many cafes and bars where you can watch the boats, fishing boats and luxury yachts behind the harbor, which is also a gate opening to the islands. After a short stroll from the Poole Pier you can reach the city park, one of the most crowded spots in the city where you can find water sports, golf courses, ice-skating rinks and playgrounds.

Poole, where you will encounter countless boats and sailboats in the port, is also known as the village of J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of the Lord of the Rings. The city’s history dates back thousands of years and thus it is quite rich in archaeological sites. You can get information about the historical processes of the city from the Iron Age to the current day, and see the historical works in the museum of the city. The city hosts the largest arts center after London, The Lighthouse, where you can watch many performances such as live shows and theater plays. Exciting greyhound racing is also one of the most interesting activities in town for sports enthusiasts.

The closest airport you can land to reach the city by air is Bournemouth International Airport. The distance between the airport and the city is 32 kilometers and it is possible to reach the city by bus, taxi or a rental car.
