Here is a quick guide to just some of the towns, communities and attractions you might want to take a closer look at once you’ve settled in.
Royale Heights itself is based in Poole, which means the famous town will be your closest port of call. It's perhaps most famous for its outstanding harbour, which is the largest of its kind on the continent. It's also home to an extensive quayside, which should be of interest to anyone looking to learn more about maritime history.
Poole visitors may be able to unearth fascinating facts and stories about sailors, pirates and more. This coastal town is immensely proud of its past, and you'll likely be able to find plenty to delve into. The quayside is a great area to spot active boats and ships, and it is of course well-developed to welcome tourists and locals alike. There’s nothing quite like taking in some of that salty sea air.
Areas such as Brownsea Island will also be of interest to people looking to learn more about historic Devon. It's here where the first Scouts group set up, and where Lord Baden-Powell laid down his plans for the whole movement. It's also a wonderful haven for all kinds of flora and fauna. If you're a big nature explorer, you will undoubtedly want to take a boat across.
Otherwise, Poole is packed with gorgeous, sandy beaches. Its coastline is the toast of the Dorset seaside. Take a look at Sandbanks in particular, which is a major Blue Flag award-winner. The beaches here are clean and well-protected, and you’ll likely spot RNLI Lifeboat volunteers working hard across the year.
The Jurassic Coast
The Jurassic Coast is one of the most spectacular locations Dorset has to offer. Easily accessible from Royale Heights, take a quick journey on the road towards a trail which boasts over 185 million years of ancient history. This extensive coastal walk extends over 95 miles of fascinating natural detail, meaning you will need to come back again and again to explore and enjoy it all.
The Coast is also easily accessible from Poole Harbour, which means you may be able to fit in a trip to town as a well as a short wander across the historic spines.

By moving to nearby Royale Heights, you can easily make your way back out to see something new on the trail whenever you like.
It's a hugely popular tourist site but is never bustling. You may recognise some of the coastlines from popular TV shows such as ITV's Broadchurch!
Bournemouth is a little further from Royale Heights than Poole centre and harbour. However, it is still not too much of a journey away. It is one of the most-visited coastal towns in the county, though again, that doesn't mean it is loud or bustling. Many people make a beeline for Bournemouth for a bright, breezy day out or the odd relaxing walk.
Like Poole, Bournemouth has plenty of great beaches for you to explore. There's a lot of aquatic history for you to sample here, as well as a huge oceanarium. Here, you'll be able to see fascinating sea life up close and can learn more about aquatic conservation. If you prefer to learn about the town’s history and culture, there are several museums and galleries scattered across the way. You can have your cultural fill!
What some people may not know about Bournemouth is that it has acres and acres of beautiful gardens and parkland waiting to be explored. There are around 2000 acres, in fact, with some Victorian gardens still being kept pristine. Bournemouth is also a brilliant place to brush up on your golf, with several greens and courses in the area.
Weymouth and Its Harbour
Weymouth is another popular yet sleepy town situated along the Jurassic Coast. Weymouth Harbour is just a stone's throw from Royale Heights, which means you can quickly head out in the car or on the bus to sample some maritime delights. Come and explore the various boating activities on offer, as well as the traditional taverns and local shops set up along the coastal town.
Weymouth Harbour also plays host to several exciting events, parades and displays across the warmer months. If you are looking for seaside spectacle, you will surely want to head out here at the first available opportunity.
For those who are fascinated by religious architecture, Sherborne Abbey is a fascinating and historically-important site of intrigue. Dating back to 705 AD, it is still open to visitors who wish to attend services, worship, and who want to take part in local events. There are guided tours, too. These take place throughout the year. There is even a gift shop for those who wish to take some souvenirs back. And why shouldn't you?
