About Poole

Situated on Europe’s largest harbour, Poole has always been connected to the sea for its prosperity. Much of Poole’s rich history of a town of merchants, mariners and foreign influences still survives in the Old Town with an exciting mix of smugglers’ passageways and elegant houses built by rich merchants in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Poole has a bustling quay, a stunning natural harbour (the second largest in the world behind Sydney) and some of the best beaches in England where watersports such as sailing, windsurfing, wakeboarding and kitesurfing are enjoyed.

Brownsea Island is the largest of the islands in Poole Harbour, now owned by the National Trust, it has spectacular views across to Studland, Old Harry Rocks and the Purbeck Hills. Brownsea Island offers a peaceful, natural setting, ideal for walks, picnics and watching wildlife, including the rare red squirrel. Its varied history includes use as a daffodil farm, pottery works and a decoy to protect Poole during WWII. Robert Baden-Powell held the first experimental scout camp here in 1907 and the island continues to be known worldwide as the birthplace of scouting and guiding.

So whether you’re moving to or from Poole, Armishaws Removals will be sure to provide nothing less than a quality removals service tailored to your requirements.
