    Towards the end of June we will be arriving back into Poole at about 00:30, is there anywhere close we can stop at this time of night, before we head north.

    You can park at the ferry port overnight on the way out, so assume you can do it on your return. They charge a fiverI think.

    That is correct, you can stay at the ferry port for £5 a night, you pay at the cafe which is near where you park, there is also showers and toilets.

    Not according to the people at the ferry terminal, they suggest I contact the Poole tourist office for help. :Sad:

    Thistle Hotel Car park on the quay, turn right if you can as soon as you come over the lifting bridge and drive down to the end of the quay, if not just follow the one way system back to the bridge and turn left.

    £4 BUT PAY THE CAR PARK ATTENDANT in the morning, don't pay the hotel
