The Best Places to Visit in Dorset

Dorset is a superb choice for exploring the tranquil English countryside. The Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covers nearly half of the county’s countryside and borders the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Meanwhile, there are beautiful beaches to discover, including the much-photographed Lulworth Cove. Unspoilt and sheltered, this little piece of coastal heaven is part of the Jurassic Coast UNESCO World Heritage Site.

For that quintessential English resort vibe, head to Poole. With some of the best beaches in England, including exclusive Sandbanks, plus plenty of entertainment options, there is lots to keep everyone busy.

The Best Things to Do in Dorset

Enjoy the coastal scenery at The National Trust’s Golden Cap Estate which is part of the Jurassic Coast and a great place for a walk. There are spectacular views at almost every turn in Dorset but one of the most famous has to be from the top of Gold Hill in the town of Shaftesbury. It’s well worth the climb and the effort.

There are beautiful beaches to be enjoyed, while a boat trip to Brownsea Island will reward you with picturesque woodlands where you might be lucky enough to spot a red squirrel.

For attractions of the historic kind, try Corfe Castle on the Isle of Purbeck peninsula. Or for something more quirky, head to the Abbotsbury Swannery, home to about 800 free-roaming swans.
