None are listed on the Tap POIs ...

However, you could try at a Sainsburys petrol station which usually have air and water very clearly signed 'Free'. I have used these a few times.

The nearest Sainsburys petrol station is at:

4 Alder Park
Alder Road
BH12 4BA

Thank you for your posts, vwalan and POIAdmin.
I frequently need to stay over near Bournemouth pier for a few nights. I used to do the Winter Gardens car park, but BCC have now barriered that. East Cliff and West Cliff parking are good, but water's the problem. There must be somewhere nearer than Sainsbury's Poole. The beach water taps are by design very difficult to fill a container from.

It's not in Poole, but a couple of miles inland from the sea in Bournemouth. I think it's a good option ...

Most fuel garages have a water supply,sometimes an outside tap or more usually next to the air tank.If you get fuel at the garage and ask to use the water,they usually say yes! It takes a bit of time using the one at the air machine though!
