Coach Holiday to Poole

Poole in Dorset is a natural first choice for a holiday on the south coast. With its bustling Quay, some of the best beaches in England and a stunning natural harbour, Poole guarantees you an exciting holiday at any time of year. Five gently sheltered beaches, including Sandbanks - winner of more Blue Flags than any UK resort - with soft golden sands, are raked and cleaned all year round. The overall style is Georgian and stems from re-development in the 18th Century when the area accommodated the prosperous middle class of Poole, such as sea captains and well-do-do tradesmen. Their brick-built houses have fine proportions with a wealth of authentic architectural details such as fanlights and boot scrapers.

Monday

We travel South to Poole, with comfort stops enroute. You should arrive at your hotel in plenty of time to settle in before your evening meal.

Tuesday

Today we travel from our hotel to Durdle Door & Lulworth Cove, A famous natural arch and a beautiful secluded cove; their existence owed to the collision of continents and the birth of the Alps. If you visit Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, look carefully and you will notice that the layers exposed in the cliffs are tilting steeply to the north. This is most notable with Durdle Door itself as it is formed from a layer of hard limestone standing almost vertically out of the sea. Normally layers of limestone would be horizontal. Only the most fundamental force in geology could have altered these rocks in this way - plate tectonics. Later we travel on to Swanage to meet the Railway. Sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery as you travel to Norden to meet your coach.

Wednesday

This morning we visit Salisbury, With timbered buildings, an Early English Gothic Cathedral home to the famous Magna Carta, a thriving market, a buzzing arts scene, museums and some of England's finest historic houses there are many things for you waiting to be explored…

Thursday

This morning we have set aside for you to enjoy your resort, Poole, Being situated on Europe's largest harbour, Poole Dorset has always looked to the sea for its prosperity. This has shaped its character as a town of merchants, mariners and foreign influences. Much of Poole's rich history still survives in the Old Town with an exciting mix of smugglers' passageways and elegant houses built by rich merchants in the 17th and 18th centuries. The Poole 'Cockle Trail', which was opened in 1998 to celebrate the 750th anniversary of Poole's first charter, traces the town's heritage. This afternoon we have included a cruise around Poole Harbour, You'll get a unique look at all five islands, the Dorset Lakelands, the Isle of Purbeck, the busy Poole Harbour entrance and the commercial areas that give the town its heartbeat.
