Poundbury is an urban extension to the Dorset county town of Dorchester, built on the principles of architecture and urban planning as advocated by The Prince of Wales in ‘A Vision of Britain’.
By far the most popular activity for visitors to Poundbury is to experience the town itself. Its quintessential English charm has to be experienced with imposing mansions mixed with homely traditional cottages and hours can be spent just wandering through the gorgeous streets taking in this uniquely British development. Many people describe Poundbury as like visiting a living film-set.
Traditional village life is more than just housing though, and Poundbury, has its fair share of shops and businesses that are worth visiting. As well as a small Waitrose supermarket and popular garden centre, Poundbury boasts a select variety of shops, cafés, restaurants and a pub, as well as a number of essential services such as medical and dental surgeries. There really is nothing better than to sit outside one of Poundbury’s eateries or the Duchess of Cornwall enjoying afternoon tea in the sunshine after a delightful day enjoying everything Poundbury has to offer.
