Brownsea Island

Submit Review

Discover the secret world of Brownsea Island The inspiration for many a story by children's writer Enid Blyton, from a child's point of view it's hard to imagine a better spot for ripping adventures and lashings of ginger beer than Brownsea Island. The fun starts on the boat ride over from Poole Quay or Sandbanks where some crossings feature commentaries on all the local celeb residents plus a jaunt round the surrounding islands. Once on Brownsea, there are kids' nature and smuggling trails and wonderful walks through red-squirrel inhabited woods. The history of the island, which is just one and a half miles long, is told in the interesting wildlife centre which details past owners of the island and the fact that the first scout camp was held there in 1907. Don't miss the daily guided walks and the birdwatching on the lagoon. Those with limited mobility note there are also guided buggy tours.
