Days out ideas in Poole


As Eagles Mount is situated just a short trip from Poole’s beautiful harbour, we frequently organise trips to allow the people in our care to take in the fresh sea air and soak in the picturesque coastal views. Outside of Poole Harbour, we also organise days out to locations in and around the Bournemouth and Poole area.

If you’re looking for ideas to take your loved ones out for the day, we recommend the following day out ideas in Poole to make the most of your time in this beautiful area.

Partake in activities near Poole Quay


Poole Quay is a beautiful place to have a wonder. There’s lots to see and do – from watching boats meandering around the harbour to enjoying performances from local musicians. The flat promenade also provides great accessibility for those with walking difficulties – and there are lots of places for fish and chips, too!
What’s more, Poole Park is just a short walk away that features a whole host of family activities like crazy golf and pottery.

Visit one of Poole’s many museums

We like to entertain the people in our care by visiting the many museums in Poole. You can learn all about Poole’s ancient port town’s archaeological history at the Poole Museum as well as its harbour town roots at the Poole Old Lifeboat Museum and Shop.

Enjoy the landscapes and tea at Poole’s best garden centres

If you prefer the sights of beautiful garden landscapes with seasonal shrubberies and bedding plants, we recommend you spend some time at some of the best garden centres Poole has to offer.

For a whole day out, we suggest Compton Acres because it takes the best flowers from around the local area and places them in an idyllic courtyard setting. Not to mention the drinks and snacks available at the café!

For gardening of a different kind, head to the Chestnut Nursery in Poole, which promotes the therapeutic qualities of horticulture, encouraging volunteers with mental illnesses to take part in the care and nurturing of the plants at the centre.

Our in-house activities at Eagles Mount

In addition to providing enjoyable days out, we also put focus on internal events to help boost individuals’ morale and wellbeing. We give the people in our care frequent opportunities to participate in a whole range of activities, including:

  • Fetes and fayres
  • Animal visits
  • School visits
  • Entertainment nights featuring tribute acts
  • Puppet shows and much more


We do the absolute utmost to make sure all the people who live with us have the chance to socialise and interact with other individuals through engaging in appeasing activities.
