Upton Country Park

Upton Country Park logo

Upton Country Park covers approximately 130 acres of estate gardens, parkland and woodland on the shoreline of Poole Harbour.

We offer so many things to do! From simply walking the dog to enjoying lunch in the Tea Rooms or admiring artworks in the Gallery Upstairs.

For children, spaced throughout the woods are ten wooden play sculptures including a tree swing that allows users to enjoy exciting and challenging play features in the natural environment of a wooded area.

No admission fees, open all year round and great walking/cycling links. What's not to love?

The Country Park team are confident this is the best place to spend a day out in Poole and Dorset, but don't just take our word for it, take a look around and start planning your visit today!

Renowned for our welcoming, professional hospitality, Upton Country Park offers a range of venue hire options for hosting your wedding, anniversary party, children's birthday or corporate training event, and more.

Whether you choose the glorious grandeur of the main house, the stunning rural chic of the Walled Garden or the rustic education facility, our dedicated events team will ensure your occasion runs smoothly, just as you planned it would!
