Start you day of adventure at 10:30am by boarding a cruise at Poole Harbour, Europe's largest harbour. After you have expolred the boat and settled in your chosen seats, whether that be on the open-air deck or indoor saloon, it's then time to head off  towards the Jurassic Coastline, passing by stunning rock formations and expansive cliffs.

Marvel at Sandbanks, the Dorset peninsula which has some of the world’s most expensive property on its golden shores. Cruise by Brownsea Island, the largest island in Poole's Harbour. Head on towards Old Harry's Rock, part of the picturesque chalk formations for which the Jurassic Coast is famous.

You will disembark once you arrive at Swanage, where you will have time to head to the town and explore. It's a great place to take a stroll and maybe grab a bite or drink before you make your way to  Railway Station, where you’ll take a journey back in time by boarding an authentic steam locomotive.

Then it's all-aboard the steam train. You’ll head towards either Corfe Castle or Norden, where you can wander amongst massive castle ruins, or visit one of the free museums in the area. Afterwards, you’ll hop back on the train to Swanage, where you’ll take the return cruise back to Poole.
