Plenty to see and do
Take the ferry from the Quay down the River Frome to Poole and Brownsea Island, or jump on the no.40 bus for a day on the beach at Swanage. Catch a film at the wonderfully restored REX cinema, or enjoy a quiet pint and a bite to eat on the balcony of the Granary, watching the boats go by. Do not miss the amazing 'Chipperies' traditional fish & chip shop on South Street !
