Welcome to Hamworthy

Hamworthy is a parish and inner suburb of Poole. It is sited on a peninsula of approximately 3 square kilometres (1.2 sq. mi) that is bordered by Upton to the north, Poole Harbour to the south, Lytchett Bay to the west and Holes Bay to the east. 

It is home to the Port of Poole ferry passenger terminal and cargo handling operations. 

Hamworthy was the site of an Iron Age settlement before it was taken over by the Romans in the 1st century and named Moriconium. The Romans made use of the harbour and built a road from Hamworthy to Badbury Rings.
It has a railway station, with a twice hourly South Western Railway service to London Waterloo on the South Western Main Line.
