    Poole – 8 Quirky Facts

    4. Smugglers Bay
      The harbour was a natural spot for both pirates and smugglers to bring their booty on land. In 1747 the town’s custom house was attacked by 60 smugglers who raided it to reclaim their captured contraband cargo of… tea!
    5. Big Business
      A number of major companies are based here including; Ryvita, Lush, Sunseeker International, Animal and of course the famous Pottery.

    One of the UK’s most historic yet strangely lesser celebrated towns, Poole has been the site of many important events. Marconi’s first radio transmission took place here, it was a major embarkation point for the D-Day landings, the first ever Scout camp took place on Brownsea Island. The Tolpuddle Martyrs embarked for Australia from Poole Harbour which sits on the edge of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, close to the New Forest and is the second largest natural harbour in the world.


    There really is so much to do, you can use it as a base to explore the New Forest and Jurassic Coast. The town is home to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, has a wealth of excellent cafes and restaurants. Of course, the seafood is exceptional and the harbour also offers great opportunities for sightseeing and fishing.

    You can head to nearby Sandbanks for a spot of celeb spotting or hop on a ferry to France. A cinema, theatre, live music venues and festivals and events throughout the year means you’ll never be short of things to do.
