Enjoy a day amidst stunning scenery, go on a cruise, enjoy a heritage steam train ride, see a UNESCO-listed coast, explore castle ruins, and walk along the beach: a perfect day trip from Poole!

Enjoy a scenic cruise from Poole Quay, take in the stunning scenery of Brownsea Island, Sandbanks, and the UNESCO-listed Jurassic Coast. Pass by the stunning rock formations and the expansive cliffs, breathe in the fresh air and spend time on the boat between the open-air deck and the indoor saloon.

Soak in the charms of Sandbanks, the Dorset peninsula which has some of the world’s most expensive properties on its golden shores. Head on towards Old Harry's Rock, the picturesque chalk formations for which the Jurassic Coast is famous.

Disembark at the Victorian Pier of Swanage for a walk along the beach and make your way to the Swanage Railway Station for an old-fashioned steam train ride. You’ll be heading towards either Corfe Castle or Norden, where you can wander amongst massive castle ruins or visit the free museums.

Afterwards, you’ll be returning to Swanage by train and then taking a boat back to Poole.
