Hotels in Poole

One of the most desirable living destinations in the country, Poole has been a strategic maritime centre since at least the Roman Empire. In the Georgian period, the settlement was heavily involved in the Newfoundland trade and became a wealthy commercial port, benefiting from a new town hall in the 1760s.

The large town, which overlooks an enormous natural harbour, was once home to a successful wool trade, and is famed for its Poole Quay district, where you can find many of the town's historic landmarks and charming pubs.

The Poole Museum

Established in 1989, Poole Museum was refurbished in the 2000s and explores the history of the area since the ancient period. Probably the main highlight of Poole Museum is the striking Poole Logboat, which dates back to the Iron Age and was discovered in the harbour in the 1960s.
