Holidays in Dorchester
A historic market town which lies on the banks of the River Frome, just south of the Dorset Downs. The County town of Dorchester was also made famous by the works of Thomas Hardy, who used the county as the principal setting for his novels.
Dorchester’s roots stem back to prehistoric times. The earliest settlements were around Maiden Castle, a large Iron Age hill fort that was one of the most powerful settlements in pre-Roman Britain. The remains of the Roman wall surrounding the town can still be seen today. The County Museum ia home to many Roman finds and is well worth a visit.
The lively new development of Brewery Square has a wealth of restaurants bars and shops and an outdoor big screen cinema area, well worth bearing in mind for those evenings you don’t want to cook!
