Reasons why Poole is the perfect place to live  

Here are the reasons why Poole is the ideal place to live for those living with mobility difficulties:

Stop by the museums and galleries

Poole has a rich Victorian and sea history, which can be explored in a number of museums and art galleries across the heart of the Old Town.

We recommend Poole Museum, which is set in a Victorian warehouse and describes Poole’s famous harbour and maritime past with archaeological exhibits including art, pirates and pottery. The museum aims to make it accessible for everyone, with level access for wheelchair and mobility scooter users. Manual wheelchairs can also be reserved prior to your visit.

Visit the parks and gardens

With its 23 Keep Britain Tidy Green Flags, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole play host to some of the tidiest parks and green spaces in the county – great for encouraging everyday health and wellbeing.

Upton Country Park has over 140 acres of beautiful award-winning gardens, open parkland, woodland and shoreline and features the stunning Georgian Grade II listed Upton House as its centrepiece. Perfect for wheelchair users, Upton Country Park consists of a network of hard-surfaced wheelchair friendly footpaths.

Wheelchair accessible beaches

Poole features some of the country’s best beaches, with three miles of golden sand, clean clear seawater as well as contemporary waterside bars and restaurants. Whether you’re one for enjoying sunbathing on the sand, relaxing with a drink by the sea or for strolling along the promenade, the beaches at Poole offer something for everyone.

Sandbanks, Shore Road and Branksome Chine in Poole are beaches that offer easier access and closer parking for wheelchair users.

For easier access onto the sand, you can rent beach-going wheelchairs with balloon tyres at Branksome Chine and Sandbanks.

Healthcare Services available in Poole

There are a range of standard medical treatment services available in and around the Poole area. These include dozens of general practices, along with Poole Hospital for more urgent and serious health concerns.

Moreover, Public Health Dorset aims to protect the health and wellbeing of the county’s population, with commissioned services such as NHS health checks and counselling sessions.
