Set in 25 acres of woodland between Wareham and Corfe Castle, the Blue Pool gets its name from how the water in this disused clay pit can appear a striking turquoise.

There are trails of varying lengths, all culminating in the tearoom by the gift shop – adjacent to which is another unique find: a quirky museum display of over 200 miniature Wareham Bears.

You’ll also find a children’s play area in the woods (don’t forget to pick up a map at the entrance) as well as various viewing points that looks out over Corfe Castle and the Purbeck Hills.

Entrance is £5 for adults; children under 16 are free.

On-site parking is free.
