When you see what is installed around the world Sea Music has always been a disappointment to me. Bland & boring. You do get a nice view of the harbour but it should of been so much more.

Well if you sometimes wonder what happens to your taxes then please visit this sculpture. Most people walk by and miss it and to be honest they haven’t missed anything.

Gives a good view of Poole quay and the kids love being up high and being able to watch the boats and water. Worth a walk up a few flights of stairs.

I didn't realise what this structure was to be honest. I just saw a metal frame with stairs on it, which gives you a bit of a high view of the Quay. Other then that there isn't much else about it.

It is a structural thing on top of a water pump or a sewage pump, I am not sure. Thing is it is something to do on the Quay, and it is not more than 100 meters from a really awesome museum. A must visit....More

This is a sculpture called Sea Music, by Anthony Caro and it offers one of the best views of Poole and its harbour via it's viewing platform. Please note that the viewing platform can only be accessed by stairs so not advisable for everyone.

Nothing fancy, so certainly not something to be excited by, in all fairness its a bit ugly, large metal framework, for what???

Looks good now been repainted not for the people who struggle with steps or stairs as quite a few to get to top good view when up there

There's a somewhat better view of the harbor from the platform on this sculpture, but the sculpture itself is better observed from a distance.
