Dorset

Dorset lies on the south west coast of England, with its many stunning beaches facing the English Channel. Even though the county is only 3 hours away from London, Dorset is mainly rural with some small towns, pretty villages and no cities within its bounds. With the coastline part of the Jurassic Coast Heritage site, Dorset is the perfect idyllic getaway.

Places to visit

Jurassic Coast, Durdle Door, Brownsea Island, Lulworth Cove and Castle, Chesil Beach, Poole harbour, Monkey World, Bournemouth, Weymouth, Lyme Regis, Dorchester, Sherbourne.
