The West Country region
Dorset is a county of beauty, a land of breathtaking scenery. It is one of the maritime counties of southern England, fronting the English Channel that 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 fine sandy beaches to be found in the British Isles.
There is a lot more to see and do for the visitor and resident alike. Dorset boasts several new leisure centres, and two dry-ski slopes. Sporting activity is available everywhere including sailing, diving and wind-surfing, golf, cricket, soccer, tennis, bowls, rugby and fishing, to name a few. More informal leisure pursuits which take advantage of the scenery are walking, horse-riding and rambling.
Dorset features some excellent museums, with 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.
The main towns of Bournemouth and Poole, and to a lesser extent smaller resorts, are a hive of night-time activity. Poole Arts Centre is the home of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
