After the tour enjoy a cup of tea. Alternatively, you can join a local expert guide for a walking tour of the town to discover its fascinating heritage, finishing at the RNLI College for a cup of tea.
This exclusive day will take place on Wednesday 19th June and is for GTOs who would like to organise a similar day for their group.
How to apply
Exploring Poole with City Cruises is open to genuine GTOs looking to bring a group back in the future. GTOs may apply for a maximum of two places and there are up to 38 in total. There are only 30 places on the RNLI tour and so a draw will operate if either the day or this option is oversubscribed.* In addition, local hotels have offered a discount (subject to availability) for GTOs wishing to stay overnight – and GTOs interested in receiving more information should indicate when applying for the readers’ day.
To apply tick the relevant box on our Free Readers Response Service by 29th May 2019.
Successful applicants will be advised by 11th June. Failure to advise us of cancellations will result in exclusion from future Reader’s Events.
