Great days out by train
The stunning sight of Poole Harbour - the largest natural harbour in Europe - is enough to make a visit to this socially and historically rich city worthwhile. If that doesn’t float your boat, then Poole’s beautiful Sandbanks and Branksome Chine beaches will be sure to take your breath away, and are often heralded as Britain’s best beaches.
Also easily reachable from Poole and well worth a visit is Brownsea Island, a National Trust property and a haven of peace and tranquillity. The Scouting movement was founded on Brownsea Island, and visitors can follow various nature walks across the 500 acres of heath and woodland.
Travel to Poole from London with our Advance Fares for just £12 Standard Class and £20 First Class, one way, when you book early.
What's more, Poole Railway Station is only a stone's throw away from most of the attractions!
