The Customs House, Poole Quay

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Custom House flaunts itself as a picturesque Georgian building with a regal sweeping staircase set amidst the serenity of Poole quay and the adjacent harbour side.

The building, originally known as the Customs and Excise building, was built in 1756, caught fire in 1813 and was reconstructed as we see it today. After fulfilling the buildings duty as the original Customs and Excise building, proprietor Mark Heffer purchased the derelict landmark and transformed it into a dynamic café bar and a la carte restaurant.
