Food Scene
Sister of Urban Reef - this comfy bar has a lovely outside seating area and is usually quieter than the other bars/ restuarants - but it doesn't have a view of the ocean!

Famous for red squirrels, wildlife and Scouting! Brownsea Island is dramatically located in Poole Harbour, with spectacular views across to the Purbeck Hills. Thriving natural habitats - including woodland, heathland and a lagoon - create a unique haven for wildlife, such as the rare red squirrel and a wide variety of birds, including dunlin, kingfishers, common and sandwich terns and oystercatchers. The perfect day's adventure - this island wildlife sanctuary is easy to get to but feels like another world from the moment you step ashore.

Arts & Culture
In 1901 Merton Russell-Cotes gave his wife Annie a dream house on a cliff-top, overlooking the sea.It was an extraordinary, extravagant birthday present – lavish, splendid, and with a touch of fantasy. They filled this exotic seaside villa with beautiful objects from their travels across the world, and lined the walls with a remarkable collection of British art, creating a unique atmosphere in a most dramatic setting. A home, an art gallery, and a museum. Then they sealed it in time, and gave it to the future.

Poole Museum is housed in four closely connected but very different buildings. You enter through the new atrium building, designed by architects Horden Cherry Lee, and completed in 2007. The site was once occupied by Poole’s first public library, founded in 1830. You then walk through into Oakley’s Mill, a Victorian grain warehouse and flour mill with floors supported by heavy beams and posts. The medieval Ship Inn used to occupy this site and, from that building, we have a remarkable set of carved timbers – two of which are displayed on the First Floor. This building houses the museum displays and the offices of the Borough of Poole Museum Service and Arts Development Unit. The third building is the Town Cellars. Originally built about 1300, it has impressive stone walls and a magnificent timber roof. Built as a medieval warehouse it is now the Local History Centre. Across Salisbury Street is the fourth building, Scaplen’s Court, Poole’s most complete medieval domestic building. This is now principally dedicated to the Museum education service. The herb and physic garden is open throughout the summer and Scaplen’s Court can be visited during August. Together these buildings form Poole Museum, which tells the story of the area that is now the Borough of Poole. It is a fascinating story that will take you through thousands of years, across oceans and into the lives of many Poole people.
