Poole Harbour’s £10 million South Quay should be officially opened by Local Growth Minister Jake Berry on Thursday 17 May 2018.

Then, just a few weeks afterwards the port will welcome the largest cruise ship to have ever docked in its history.

Poole Harbour will be welcoming thousands of cruise ship passengers to the south coast this summer with the completion of South Quay, the world’s newest cruise berth.

Completion of the £10m South Quay project concludes Poole Harbour Commissioner’s ambitious 7-year expansion, said to be one of the biggest port developments seen on the South Coast in recent years.
