Poole Port Information

Poole is situated on the South coast of England in Dorset. It is approximately 120 miles from London and Poole harbour is one of the worlds largest natural harbours and serves both cross channel ferries, and cargo vessels, with passenger ferries sailing to France, and the Channel Islands.

History shows that the Romans used Poole as an invasion port for their conquest of Southern Britain. Poole became a major port for England in the early 18th century when it had more ships trading with North America than any other English port.

Since that time the Port has become more and more important and, in the last twenty years, has seen a considerable increase in prosperity through a programme of modernisation which has redeveloped the commercial links with Europe.

In the summer months the bustling Quay, with its many waterfront bars and restaurants and locally some of the best beaches in England make Poole a first choice for tourists on the South Coast.

Poole Ferry Terminal

Poole ferry terminal has a number of facilities including a snack bar/buffet that opens during ship arrivals and departures (summer season only). A currency exchange service, left baggage locker area and showers in the toilet block near the car check-in lanes.

Car parking is opposite the terminal building and is charged per hour free for the 1st hour with a daily rate of £7. Caravans cannot be left in the car park but can be parked 'overnight' in the car lanes for a £5.00 fee.
