Brownsea Island is a little bit special. Sat in the middle of Poole Harbour, it only takes a short boat ride to reach the small dock but from here you seem to enter a different world!
Beneath the shadow of the castle, the same castle that is so familiar to anyone using the car ferry from the Isle of Purbeck, a small cluster of buildings lead you to the start of many paths that crisscross the island.

Once you get past the entrance buildings you can take one of the many footpaths that crisscross the island, all of these give you different views across the harbour to Poole or towards the Isle of Purbeck.
If you are lucky you may spot one of Brownsea's Red Squirrels. These beautiful little animals are one of the reasons so many people come here, but only one of the reasons.
