Why move to Poole?
Much has been written about Poole. Clean, safe and close to the beach. Throw in the excellent choice of local schools and it’s not hard to see why many Londoner’s are flocking to the south coast.
Famous for its natural harbour and for being close to the Island of Brownsea, the birthplace of scouting and guiding, Poole is a family-friendly destination that oozes sophistication. And yet, Poole’s parity manages to strike an adequate balance between those with high and small budgets.
There are several high-end properties and apartments, as well as more modest homes. Each share excellent views of the sparkling marina. Likewise, the marina is a hub not only for the rich yachting set, but boats of all shapes, sizes and values.
With its twisting, Georgian lanes and beautiful park gardens, the old town is the perfect place for a stroll. In the evening, Pool Quay becomes an altogether livelier affair, complete with bustling bars and refined restaurants. There’s also a packed summer events programme, including one of the biggest arts centres outside of London.
What is more, Poole is easily accessible by rail, with Weymouth just a 36-minute journey and London only 2 hours. With Poole a whole new world awaits.
Schools & Education
School options in Poole are first rate with plenty of choice. Ofsted has rated the primary schools of Old Town First, Lilliput CofE First, Baden Powell and St Peter’s CofE Middle all as ‘outstanding’.
The Girls Secondary school of Parkstone Grammar received a similarly impressive billing of ‘outstanding’ and the Boys equivalent, Poole Grammar was also judged as ‘good’ with ‘outstanding’ features.
The Poole branch of Bournemouth & Poole College in North Road offers various higher education courses, including foundation degrees, delivered in conjunction with Bournemouth University and other higher education institutions.
Things to Do in Poole
Poole is home to a wide variety of leisure facilities and is not short of things to see and do.
Poole’s ‘Summertime in the South’ consisting of various events on Poole Quay and Sandbanks throughout the summer months proves a scorching success.
Throughout June and July, there is live music, street entertainment and a large firework display which all take place on Poole Quay every Thursday evening.
For something to do with the kids, head to Splashdown at Tower Park, an action-packed water park with a wide selection of rides, including indoor and outdoor flumes, slides and tubes.
Or why not learn to sail at the harbour. The Rockley Sailing School runs courses on weekends and during the evenings, as well as short sailing and windsurfing courses. Join them for a one-hour taster session or introduction course.
Once you have relocated to your new home in Poole, there is a whole host of important things you need to organise.
Below is some practical information which may prove helpful.
Working in Poole
Poole has a strong well-balanced growing economy which is largely based on leisure and tourism. The sectors of education, manufacturing, construction banking and retail are also very important.
Some of the major employers in the district include Barclays, Sunseeker, John Lewis and Coutts.
The University of Bournemouth’s main campus is situated in Poole, which provides plenty of opportunities for work in higher education.
Additionally, there are several small trading and industrial estates in Poole, including the Nuffield Industrial Estate and Creekmoor, which are home to smaller firms offering employing staff in various sectors.
Lots of residents in Poole also commute to other nearby towns and cities. Bournemouth (12 mins) is the most popular, but others venture further afield to Weymouth (45mins) and Southampton (1hr).
The regeneration of the waterfront area has begun, and the building of a second harbour bridge has opened up land for housing projects which has created jobs in construction. Poole Council predicts that these developments will generate £1 billion of investment in the town.
Poole Property Prices
Poole is a highly desirable and affluent area with many celebrity residents, including football manager, Harry Redknapp. As such, the average property prices are higher than the rest of the UK.
Average house prices in Poole appear pricey compared to the UK average, but this is due to the notoriously expensive waterside houses at Sandbanks. Outside of this area, there is plenty of inexpensive housing available to buy or rent.
The average property price currently in Poole is £354,000, with detached homes starting at £495,707.
The most expensive neighbourhood is at Sandbanks on Old Coastguard Road and The Horseshoe. Properties in these locations are selling for almost £3,000,000.
