Poole is a tourist resort, attracting visitors with its large natural harbour, history, the Poole Arts Centre and sandy beaches. The town has a busy commercial port with cross-Channel freight and passenger ferry services. The headquarters of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) are located in Poole, and the Royal Marines have a base in the town's harbour. Despite their names, Poole is the home of The Arts University College at Bournemouth, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and a significant part of Bournemouth University. During the Second World War the town was one of the main departing points for the D-Day landings of the Normandy Invasion.

 

The mainly flat levels in Poole centre make it an ideal base for a Shopmobility service. Equipment may be used in the area covering Poole Park, the Hospital, Civic Centre, High Street and the Quay
