Are you visiting Poole this winter with your family, and stuck on what to do? Not to worry, we have you covered! With these 7 recommendations on places to go and things to do, you will be spoiled for choice!  

Lemur Landings at Tower park

Situated in Tower Park (the biggest leisure complex in Poole), Lemur Landings is a children’s entertainment centre which boasts soft play, a role play village, climbing facilities, and the ‘ted shed’. This activity would be perfect for your children to blow off some steam, and with it being indoors, is perfect for the winter months!

The Project Climbing Centre 

Another indoor activity to combat the cold, and can involve tweens, teenagers and adults is  The Project Climbing Centre. Offering courses and coaching, you will be able to start from beginner and get the support you need.

Poole Quay

Less than a mile away from the climbing centre, you will find Poole Quay, which is known for being Europe’s largest natural harbour. Be sure to drop a visit to soak up the thrilling history, and the delicious eateries that are available. With fun trails, nearby parks and amusements to keep the family entertained, we are sure whatever the weather, Poole Quay is a fantastic place to visit. Whilst you are there, why not hop on City Cruises, located in the centre of the quay and explore Poole and the surrounding areas by boat.
