Where to stay in Poole

Consider renting an apartment inside a redeveloped warehouse in Poole's quay. This area is full of attractions and views over the port, where boats leave for cruises to nearby islands. The town center and the harbor are near each other, and lodging is available in both areas.

  • A great place to visit, and read and see, what the lifeboat crews did. We would highly recommend a visit.  more »
  • A small but informative and moving look at the people of the RNLI and the services they provide. Including local history and rescues. Buy a souvenir and help support this live saving institution.  more »
  • Not a great deal to say. This is a worthwhile visit. The fishermens dock was a bit scruffy when we went. Lots of blown about litter. Not the fault of the Museum. But not a good thing to see. We visit ...  more »

  • Fascinating place full of local history and housed in the original Poole Lifeboat Station. Well worth a visit.
  • A wonderful example of how brave the RNLI an especially knowing that they are all volunteers. The boat in the shed is from the 1940s in was used in the Second World War II rescue ship mate. The boat is far from technical and and is very basic compared to today's boats. This is well worth a visit as it is free and it gives you a wonderful insight into the history of the service. All the service of is that you had a small donation at the ends and I would implore everyone to do so.
  • Volunteer staffed museum with an incredible insight into the history of the RNLI and Poole. Great little gift shop too, ask for a bag of the Seagull Droppings!
  • A great story of the RNLI and what they have accomplished so far
