Review: Poole Harbour BIG Wheel


There’s no better way to end a busy week than relaxing with a nice glass of Prosecco. But wait! What about relaxing with a nice glass of Prosecco, 35-meters in the air with stunning panoramic views of Poole Harbour? That’s what the wife and I did when we went to check out the Poole Harbour BIG Wheel.

Located in Harbourside Park, the BIG Wheel is coupled with the HarBar – a converted shipping container serving up a wide selection of local ales, ciders, wines, cocktails and soft drinks. We were having the VIP experience, so we were presented with 2 glasses of Prosecco before we made our way across to board the wheel.

Wheel4We had the whole thing to ourselves, so we were able to kick back and really soak up the surroundings. And once we’d spent a short time marvelling at the view, I proceeded to tell my wife how I think I could easily swim from Baiter Park to Brownsea Island (she wasn’t convinced).

Lucky for us, the predicted rain showers held off and the sun was out in full force – it made the whole experience a lot more enjoyable. Baiter Park already has stunning views of Poole Harbour & Brownsea Island, but the BIG Wheel offers a new perspective that will make you appreciate the picturesque backdrop that little bit more.

Wheel1As we came to the end of our ride, a number of other couples and groups were boarding the wheel. We couldn’t resist enjoying another glass of fizz as we relaxed in the HarBar’s outdoor seating area and watched as others delighted in the experience.

This is a great attraction that can be enjoyed by all, and it will certainly be a focal point when the Seven Seas Festival gets underway from the May 19-21. And if you want to make the most of it, we think that paying a little bit extra for the VIP experience is well worth it.
