Last weekend my mum drove over to see us and we decided to head to the blue pool near wareham, to make sure of a token she had for free entry and a cream tea (she won it at a village fete a few weeks back).
I excitedly jumped in the car and we started nattering about our week, the heavens opened during the drive but we risked it anyway...
At the end of a long drive way is a field style carpark, at one side there's a gate and a man sat in a shed. We giggled slightly at the innocence of the entrance but excitedly walked on through, past the Wareham bears (no photos allowed) and straight on to one of the many walking trails around the blue pool. Sadly, it wasn't very blue at all and the grey sky made taking nice photos quite tricky which was a shame as when Emma from The Style box went they took some beautiful pictures.
We also made sure to grab our free cream tea, which was more than underwhelming. Tiny scones and a very modest portion of jam and cream served on a polystyrene plate...not the twee british affair that one would expect.
It was a lovely walk, and a lovely day out...but very underwhelming and rather overpriced - adults are £5.50 each!
Have you been to the blue pool at wareham before?
