Poole Docks


Recommended Posts

Are we right in thinking we can overnight at Poole docks, we have just booked for 29/12/2014 to Cherbourg.

As we have family in Poole is it safe to leave our caravan so can see them?

Can't help Martin re overnight parking at Poole. Try a phone call to the Company. Regarding leaving the van unattached - I wouldn't do it. Should you lose it, your insurers might even reject your claim.

We would leave car attached it's only a short walk to our daughters on the other side of the quay.

It is a while since we used Poole but they wouldn't let us park on Quayside as insufficient room then. ...

Apparently, you can park in the boarding lanes after the last ferry has gone. Im not sure but that might be about 10pm

Being pedantic, there is a difference between Poole Quay and Poole docks. You certainly would find it difficult to park your van on the Quay it's difficult enough to park your car.

Why not book into a local caravan site for the day?

That would certainly be my preference. .. Having lived in Poole for around 15years, I know that part very well and I would not leave a caravan there!

we came through Poole two weeks ago as we have stopped on the docks overnight a few times, we arrived about 5pm for the next morning ferry, only to find they had put very large containers blocking the entrance, we found the security guard and he told us to park in the road and about ten pm they would remove the blockage and we could then go in and sleep overnight.

 

The security guard then parked across the entrance and checked who was coming and going, they told us they had had trouble with gypsies.

We regularly park up at Poole Ferry terminal, after 7. 30 at night!

 

A man knocks on the caravan door at roughly 6. 30 am and tells us to move to the correct lane within the hour! Brilliant service from Brittany ferries!
