Living in Poole
Branksome Park and the adjacent Branksome Dene Chine beach are some of the loveliest areas in Poole. The beach, which is just west of our proposed development, is a natural beauty with a dramatic cliff face hanging over golden sands and a promenade. The cliffs were actually formed some 45 million years ago and range in colour, making for some incredible photos. Branksome Dene Chine beach has parking and public transport stops, wheelchair accessibility, public toilets, and small food and drink stands. Lifeguards patrol from May to September. It's also a dog-friendly beach, so feel free to bring your four-legged friend down here for a run around! From Branksome, you're surrounded by 10 miles of Blue Flag beaches stretching across the rest of Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch.
If you don't feel like a seaside walk, there are also buses running along the promenade from Bournemouth to Swanage, with a stop just 100m from our proposed development. The route will take you to Westbourne, Canford Cliffs and Bournemouth town centre. In summer, open-air buses run, so you can enjoy the warm weather.
The popular seaside resort of Bournemouth is just 2.5 miles away from our proposed development. There are several museums and galleries of interest, as well as attractions such as St Peter's Church (where Mary Shelley of Frankenstein fame is buried), Bournemouth Pier and theatre, the award-winning Central Gardens, and Oceanarium Bournemouth. If you'd like to go further afield, direct train services run from Bournemouth station to Winchester, Southampton Airport Parkway and London Waterloo.
