Site Details

Approximately 1½ miles long by ¾ mile wide, Brownsea Island lies just inside the entrance to Poole Harbour. It offers magnificent views across the harbour, the Purbeck Hills and Studland Bay. Just a short and enjoyable boat trip from the bustle of Poole or Bournemouth, the charm of the landscape, the rich variety of wildlife and an intriguing heritage make Brownsea a fascinating place to visit.
