Exploring Dorset

Dorset in south-west England is famous for the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, which features landforms such as Lulworth Cove, the Isle of Portland, Chesil Beach and Durdle Door. It is also home to some of the best beaches in south England, ideal for family holidays.

Dorset is largely rural with many small villages and few large towns, and no cities. Popular places to visit include Bournemouth, the historic port of Poole, Dorchester, Weymouth, Sherborne, Gillingham, and the small coastal towns of Lyme Regis and Swanage.

The area has a superb collection of castles and forts for you to explore, including Sherborne Castle, Lulworth castle and Portland Castle.
