Dorset has less rainfall than Devon or Cornwall and the summer swimming is excellent. The water is clean and the beaches varied: reefs and shale ledges for snorkelers, safe sandy beaches for children at Studland, Swanage and Weymouth plus great swathe of shingle that makes up the famous Chesil Bank.
Over half the county has been designated an Area of Outstanding Beauty and there are many places to visit from the famous Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door arch to fossil hunting at Charmouth and Lyme Regis, to viewing the Roman artefacts in Dorchester and climbing to the top of the majestic Maiden Castle.
The wide and varied activities on offer in the county include sailing, surfing, coasteering, rock climbing, horse riding and golf. The choice of beaches in Dorset also offer every thing from the 'Kiss Me Quick' resorts to the unspoilt, deserted remote bays and coves, most are dog friendly all year round.

Getting to Dorset is quick and easy. Whether by train or car getting here is easy and just 2.5 hours from London and the home counties.
