Boscombe Pier and beaches
Ok, Christchurch has a cathedral, cobbled streets and a marina.
Bournemouth has Boscombe Down, two piers, miles of golden beaches and probably a couple of Golden Nugget sal0ons somewhere.
Poole has a ferry
port, some of the most expensive housing in the country and Sandbanks play area for grown-ups.
But it seems endless.
However, it does end and it ends delightfully with a ferry crossing the narrow stretch of water
between Sandbanks and Studland and once across it is beautiful, delightful Dorset, starting with a gem of a peninsular called Studland, an area of inlets, sandy beaches and heathland thankfully protected by the National Trust.
