Poole Park has a minature railway, small indoor ice rink, children's indoor soft play, two playgrounds, mini golf, tennis courts, fallen trees for climbing, pedaloes on the lake and a fantastic restaurant and cafe which enjoys views across the lake and beyond into Poole Harbour.

Also for the active visitor there are two circuit training classes in the same street as the property on a Wednesday and Friday evenings for £4 per class on a drop-in basis (www.fightforfitness.co.uk).

The Dolphin Centre has indoor shopping with all the major high street brands and further up the High Street towards the Quay there are lots of fun curio shops, tattoo shops, boutiques and spas.

Poole Museum (entry is free, donations only) is a wonderful place to visit for all ages and houses displays about the history of Poole and the historic Poole Harbour as well as changing installations.

And after all that sightseeing, for some well deserved pampering visit the fabulous Lush Spa in Poole High Street with its eclectic treatment area, advance booking essential!
