There are famous houses to spot at Sandbanks, beautiful beaches and historic Poole bays, a castle and Lord Baden-Powell’s original campsite to see as you pass by Brownsea, and keep your eyes peeled for local fauna who might pop their heads up to say hello!

- Listen to commentary, take pictures and spot the famous houses on Sandbanks
- Available daily April to October, and on selected dates November to March

What happens on the day?
On arrival at Poole Quay you’ll head for the red City Cruises kiosk to swap your vouchers for Cruise tickets.
The staff at the kiosk will let you know when the next departures are so you can plan your time in Poole, and when it’s time to head off you’ll clamber aboard the boat, take a seat above or below deck, then settle in for an informative and intriguing 1 hour 10 minute cruise around Poole Harbour and Brownsea Island.
Your voucher is valid for 9 months from the date of issue, while government restrictions apply in relation to Covid-19 we are offering free extensions on all experiences so you can take your experience when the time is right.
