Poole
Local Ferries, Poole
Dorset BH19 3BA

 

Poole is built around a large harbour and some of its attractions can only be reached by ferry.

Instead of travelling around the harbour to get to destinations on the Isle of Purbeck, a vehicle and pedestrian ferry crosses the harbour mouth at Sandbanks and saves a 25 mile (40 km) return road trip.
