The blue pool is so named for minerals that reflect an azure, turquoise or green colour depending on the light. It's part of a now defunct estate and can be accessed directly as an attraction. There's a shop and large restaurant on site, and the shop contains the 'Wareham Bears', a huge collection of dioramas of small teddies in Victorian... More

Pleasant walk around the 'pool' but extensive and disappointing vandalism to natural rock faces with individuals choosing to scribe their names. An expensive attraction when surrounding landscape just as beautiful but free. The tearoom was a huge disappointment - admittedly it was raining and so quite busy but not really an excuse for an established business.Our toasted sandwiches were charcoal... More

The Blue Pool is a natural phenomenon in Dorset. There is a very good tea shop selling excellent quality produce. I particularly liked it because it was so peaceful and calm. The staff were kind too and sympathetic

Ample parking and a pleasant walk around the pool. The pool isn't as large as I had assumed but nice none the less. Would probably say put aside an hour or two to leisurely stroll and stop around the pool.

It was a lovely tranquil walk through the trees, with glimpses of the water. But I could say the same about the free Upton Park on Poole Bay, or Arne Nature Reserves. The USP - the Blue Pool - is actually green and looks no different from other inland waters. Wildlife was being shy - one frog and bees. I... More

Wonderful walk around the pools and childrens playground. two routes which interconnect - good with older children who can use up their energy without getting lost. NOT COMMERCIALISED! Café? - needs updating, but service ok

We had a very pleasant walk around the Blue Pool and no, it's not always that colour - though it does seem to change colour as you go around it. It is the sort of place where you could wander for quite a while, or take a picnic and sit overlooking the pool at its more attractive side. The information... More

Although the pool isn't always blue there is a lovely nature walk around it and as you walk the pool changes worth a visit
