Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Poole quay has a long history dating back to Roman times, from the 16th to the 19th century many fishing vessels sailed from Poole to fish off Newfoundland for cod.

Today, set within Poole Harbour; one of the largest natural harbours in the world, the surrounding area is known for its ecology, supporting varied habitats as well as the Brownsea Island nature reserve.

On the quay there are ferries to Brownsea Island and Pleasure Boats that go up the river Frome to Warehame, there is also the Poole Museum and Poole Pottery. Walking east of the quay there is a lovely walk of 2 miles along the coast of the harbour.
