Poole Pottery

On the ground floor you can watch several skilled artists at work.

Alan White, our Master Potter, can be seen at his wheel throwing clay and creating unique, but classic shapes. Alan has appeared on TV many times and has been associated with Poole for over 40 years. His designs and shapes are sought after by collectors worldwide.

Jane Brewer, Nikki Massarella and Lorna Whitmarsh are three of our designers and artists. You can see Jane, Nikki and Lorna at work decorating pieces of Poole Pottery. As well as helping to design new collections, they also decorate one off pieces which are available for sale in the shop on The Quay. These one off pieces are highly sought after by collectors.

Weatherspoons – The Quay

The Quay was the name of the existing pub taken over by Wetherspoon, which had occupied this former warehouse since 1996.

In Tudor times, the Quayside was called the Great Quay, even though it was less than 200 feet long! The Little Quay was added and further extended in the late 18th century. This was the New Quay, where this pub and warehouses and wharves were built.

The Lord Wimborne is a 10 minute walk away amongst the shops just off the High Street.

Brownsea Island

Visitors will be fascinated by the island's rich history, for as well as boasting daffodil farming and pottery works, it was the birthplace of the Scouting and Guiding movement.

The Baden-Powell Outdoor Centre invites you to follow in the footsteps of Lord Baden-Powell and the very first Scouts who camped here in 1907.

The campsite and hostel are open to all recognised youth and educational groups. Sailing, canoeing, archery, orienteering, conservation work and more are all available on the island.

So whether you love wildlife or just want to escape from the stresses of modern life, Brownsea is the perfect place to explore and enjoy throughout the year.
