Brownsea Island

Interesting
Brownsea Island is located close to the town of Poole. It is fringed by inviting beaches along its south shore and boasts two nature reserves on either side of Middle Street. The one to the north is a sanctuary for waterfowl, while the one to the south is home to numerous peacocks. The Baden Powell Stone commemorates the first Boy Scout camp held in 1907. From here there is a splendid view across Poole Bay.
