Venue type: Outdoor

The Blue Pool at Furzebrook is a natural water feature which constantly varies in colour. Very fine clay in suspension in the water diffracts light in different ways, producing a spectrum of colour sometimes green sometimes turquoise. There's no entry to the pool, it's just for viewing.

Elsewhere on site there are 3 children's play areas. They can also hunt for model squirrels in the trees (parents get involved too!), when they have finished the hunt they can collect a certificate from the Museum.

Also now home to The Wareham Bears, a collection of 200+ miniature dressed bears set within their own house, stables and other environments.

Had a great day today at blue pool spent 3 hours there, four adults and 2 children one 3 and one 5 years old. They both loved the fairy door and squirrel trail as well as the play areas. We had a picnic but did use the cafe for hot drinks and ice cream which was reasonably priced. Would recommend.

The pool was so blue!

Gorgeous calming peaceful place. Even subdued my boisterous 10 year old. I asked him for a review he said.....The pool was so blue!!!
