Introduction

Endowed by nature with a variety of charms of which few towns can boast, Poole, the Gateway to Dorset offers irresistible attractions to the holiday-maker. Occupying a central position on the South Coast, this exquisite corner of the Hardy country is a happy combination of a seaside holiday resort, yachting and motor boating centre, and residential district.

Branksome Chine

It can justly claim to be the holiday resort par excellence, no matter what the season. Its health-giving climate is one of perpetual spring; all the year round its six miles of Channel front pine and heather-clad slopes, unique chines and numerous open spaces, are bathed by an abundance of sunshine. Its magnificent isle-studded, land-locked harbour has already achieved national fame as a yachting and motor boating centre de luxe. Poole's progress as a health and holiday resort in the last two decades has been remarkable. Twenty years ago it's population was less than 40,000; today it exceeds 63,000. Its myriad charms are contained within an area of nearly 25 square miles of country, which varies from from sea-grit sand-dunes and tree-clad cliffs to rolling heathland and picturesque rural areas. Almost unique in character, this gem among English watering places is set amid bracing surroundings. See Poole ..... and live !
