The West Country region
Dorset is a very popular holiday destination all year round. It offers beautiful rolling countryside and the Purbecks. Bournemouth with its award winning beaches and The New Forest nearby. Southampton, Salisbury and Stonehenge are all within reasonable travelling distance. Bournemouth has excellent facilities for the tourists and the town and has a lovely calm multi-racial community.
Dorset features some excellent museums, with world leading centres at Bovington (The Tank Museum, telling the history of military vehicles), and the Russell Cotes Museum and Art Gallery in Bournemouth. Other museums include the Dorset County Museum in Dorchester, The Red House in Christchurch, the Royal Signals Museum at Blandford, and the award winning Brewers Quay in Weymouth. Many smaller towns have their own local museums.Dorset is a county of great beauty, a land of contrast and breathtaking scenery. It is one of the maritime counties of southern England, fronting the English Channel which separates the United Kingdom from mainland Europe. Its coastline extends some 140 kilometres from Lyme Regis in the west to Christchurch in the east, and offers a selection of the finest sandy beaches to be found in the British Isles.
The award winning heritage coast begins in Poole Harbour and includes the Purbeck coastline which is the site of special nature reserves and countryside/marine parks. Travelling westwards, equally spectacular is the Chesil Bank, a barren pebbled beach, stretching 25 kilometres from Weymouth to Bridport. This, with the internationally famous Abbotsbury Swannery, is a photographer's paradise, and a sea captain's nightmare!
The region owes much of its charm to its villages - over 150 of them - and they are well worth exploring. Drive through Abbotsbury's long and winding main street and you will see sandstone cottages, tempting tea rooms and glimpse an old coaching inn. Other villages have quaint names like Toller Porcorum, Plush & Piddlehinton, each has its history, character and charm. Many - like Evershot, Nettlecombe or Cerne Abbas - lie hidden in quiet inland valleys. In Cerne Abbas, for instance, you'll find houses dating from the 15th century, the ruins of an Abbey and the famous Giant - a striking 180-foot high figure cut into the chalk downs overlooking the village.

Dorset has many country houses and other historic sites to visit. Kingston Lacy near Wimborne is run by the National Trust, as is both Hardy's Cottage (the birthplace of the author) and Max Gate (the author's later home) near Dorchester
A great place to stay if you want to be in the hustle and bustle and be walking distance to all the main attractions. The town centre offers beautiful sandy beaches which have facilities to provide safe holidays for children, wonderful parkland and world famous gardens, big name shops and stores, theatres, cinemas, clubs and nightlife, cafes, restaurants, pubs and amusements - fish and chips too! The Pavilion and Bournemouth Pier Theatre throw some of the most popular shows, and of course there is the exciting Christmas Pantomime and New Year festivities, highlighting that Bournemouth is an all year round centre of excitement.
This area along the seafront and running up the chines is known as West Cliff. The mix of verdant gardens and fine sandy beaches you find here are a good mix for those hot sunny days where you can seek shelter in the shade of the gardens if the beach heat is too intense. At the base of the chines and along West Overcliff Promenade you'll find car parks, refreshment kiosks, cafes and restaurants. A popular walk is from Alum Chine along the prom to Bournemouth Pier which will take you past a lot of Bournemouth's attractions.
Just next to Westcliff is the Bournemouth International Centre which, now even bigger and better than ever, has more flexibility for everything from large rock and pop concerts to multi-hall conferences and smaller more intimate meetings to exhibitions, opera, ballet and comedy performance.
Bournemouth's seven miles of award-winning blue flag beaches stretch from Hengistbury Head Nature Reserve at the mouth of Christchurch Harbour, all the way across to the world renowned & extremely exclusive Sandbanks Peninsular at the mouth of Poole Harbour - The world's second largest Natural Harbour.
