Take a wheeled tour of the gardens and woodland of Upton House and Country Park, zip through the trees and tracks of Groves Wood, and enjoy a traditional Dorset Cream Tea on this Dorset Segway Adventure Tour and Cream Tea for Two. You'll take a glide through the grounds of the Grade II* listed Georgian mansion house towards a breath-taking view across Poole's Holes Bay, before heading to a nature reserve filled with unique wildlife and plants. You'll have to be quick to catch them though as you whizz along the route on your two wheeled wonder. If you've never ridden a Segway before there's no need to worry ' you'll have plenty of time to practice before hitting the muddy trail, where you'll get to prove your skills zig-zagging up and down dirt track slopes. Either before or after your adventure you'll also get to enjoy a refreshing Dorset Cream Tea for two in the gardens or courtyard of the Upton House Tea Rooms. You'll be served locally sourced and home-baked scones with clotted cream and jam, as well as cake and your choice of tea or coffee: the ideal accompaniment to a South West adventure
