Towns to visit include the County Town of Dorchester, Lyme Regis, Weymouth, Corfe Castle, Bridport, Shaftesbury and Sherborne while villages not to be missed include Cerne Abbas, Abbotsbury and Milton Abbas.
Ancient sites include Dorchester's Roman Town House, The Hardy Monument, St Catherine's Chapel, Kingston Russell Stone Circle, Jordan Hill Roman Temple, Maiden Castle, The Cerne Abbas Giant, and many more.
The climate in Dorset is mild, less wet, cool and moist than the South-West of England generally.
Dorset is great for lovers of wildlife as its habitats are among the richest for biodiversity in the country. It is also the only county in England without a Motorway!
