‘I had no idea I had such a delightful spot in my kingdom’… So exclaimed the Prince Regent after a trip to Brownsea Island in 1818. For such a little island, it has had a remarkably varied history: military stronghold, industrial site, refuge for wildlife and Edwardian society. It has also been pillaged by Viking raiders and blitzed by Nazi bombers.
There is plenty to discover on Brownsea Island and at a mile long and just under a mile wide, a walk around the island is easily manageable. Explore the island to find your favourite viewpoint or picnic spot. At the far end of the island, enjoy views across to the Purbecks to the left and Poole to the right, on a clear day you might be able to spot Corfe Castle. Walk through the woodland to experience the peace and tranquility of the island, away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. You may spot one of the elusive Sika deer or some red squirrels. While away your half-term days with an adventure on Brownsea Island this May.
Alternatively you can stay at Sandbanks enjoy seaside, kite or windsurfing at Sandbanks Watersports Academy or even hire and ride the bike there to Studland Beach (ferry and short ride will get you even to Harry Rocks do not forget to leave enough time to return back on time).
