    Find Family Days Out In Poole

    Enjoy all the benefits of a family day out in a large coastal town. You’ll enjoy the fresh air and fun things to do in Poole!

    Sandbanks Beach is a regular Blue Flag Award winner and extremely family friendly. Sheltered and sandy, the beach gradually slopes into the water making it ideal for younger children to paddle and play safely. Don’t worry if you’ve forgotten your bucket and spade, the beach shop sells everything you’ll need to make the most of your visit. There are also toilets, a café that sells hot food and drinks and an ice cream kiosk.

    Make the most of your Poole family day out and explore the coast with Poole Harbour Cruises. Sit back and relax on a 75-minute cruise that whisks you past beautiful bays, or their Sea Train Adventures give you the chance to explore different destinations in Dorset.

    See red squirrels and other native wildlife on Brownsea Island, where scouting and girl guiding was born. Be inspired by the beautiful views and take off on your own nature trail as you walk through the woodland and wetlands following in the footsteps of the Famous Five.

    Finish your day with a splash at Splashdown! Zoom down one of thirteen indoor and outdoor water slides, including The Screamer for the thrill seekers in the families and The Mississippi Drifter for those that want something a little more relaxing after a busy day!
