Famed for the Jurassic Coast (England's first and only natural World Heritage Site) and collection of sleepy seaside towns, the county of Dorset is the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway. Situated in the South West and bordered by the counties of Devon, Hampshire, Somerset and Wiltshire, this area is home to some of England’s loveliest coastline. Looking like something out of a picture book, the Dorset Coast is filled with countless fossils and impressive rock formations, as well as rugged cliffs, hidden coves and sandy beaches.

With all this natural beauty on your doorstep, there’s an array of things to discover in the local area. Culture lovers will want to pay the bustling seaside resort towns of Poole, Bournemouth and Weymouth a visit, while Lyme Regis, Wareham, West Bay and Swanage offer picturesque views and sleepier atmospheres. Meanwhile, North Dorset is famous for beautiful forests, rolling emerald hills and ancient stone villages.

With a whole host of cultural sites and fun activities on offer, the county of Dorset is brimming with things to do and see. A trip to the Isle of Purbeck is a must.
