Dorchester is a vibrant town for sightseeing and shopping but also a fantastic centre for visiting the area!
Visit Dorchester's museums and shops, walk the walks, drink great coffee, eat great food and take trips to the Jurassic coast. Visitors find a town with one foot in the past and another firmly in the future, with some of this country's best preserved Roman ruins moments away from a thriving high street and one of the most exciting current retail and residential re-development projects in the UK at Brewery Square.
In the countryside surrounding Dorchester you can find plenty of opportunities to get active and explore the mile upon mile of cycling trails and walking routes that surround Dorchester and taking in some of the most breathtaking scenery while being just moments from the town centre on routes including Maiden Castle and the Dorset Jubilee Trail.
Lovers of the acclaimed poet and writer Thomas Hardy will be aware of the significance of Dorchester. Dorchester is of course the ‘Casterbridge’ featured in many of his novels and references of the great man can be found in and around the town. Hardy’s birthplace can be found on the outskirts of Dorchester in Higher Bockhampton.
