West Point

Once the site of the glamorous Lakshore House/Lakeshore Lodge, this well-groomed park area is perfect for the visitor wanting to avoid the more crowded beach area at the Park.

Featuring interpretive plaques funded with the help of the Friends of Sandbanks, visitors can get an idea of what the area was like since it became the home of the Lakshore house in the 1870s.
