About

A Walk around the Old Town (approximately 1½ hours)

Follow the brass plaques in the pavement to retrace Poole's rich historical heritage, as well as learning about the present-day landmarks.  This trail was opened in 1998 to celebrate the 750th anniversary of Poole's ancient charter. Discover how the town of Poole has changed over hundreds of years and what secrets are hidden within our old buildings.

Pick up a leaflet at Poole Tourist Information located in Poole Museum. (small charge).
