Thanks to its enormous natural harbour, there’s something truly unique about the walks around Poole. Lying in the middle of England’s south coast, the harbour is completely sheltered from all directions thanks to Studland and Sandbanks, little twin peninsulas with a narrow channel between. You can enjoy walks along the quayside and through the town’s parks or go on longer adventures around the harbour to find its nature reserves and wetlands. 


You can find some of the most delightful hikes in Poole on its very own island: Brownsea Island. Reach it by ferry and ramble through its woods to see the red squirrels who reside peacefully here, safe from their rivals, the greys. This seafaring town has additional bays to explore, where flocks of seabirds and waders strut around looking for snacks. Lytchett Bay, Holes Bay and Poole Park all have lovely walking trails where nature-spotting is easy.
