Whilst it may not be as grand as Devon or as rugged as Cornwall the county of Dorset is a beautiful part of Britain that gets a bit overlooked. In some ways this isn’t too great a shame as the hordes of holiday makers pass by, it does manage to retain its charm without being clogged up with visitors. What are it’s most precious bits? If you need to see them just give Coach Hire Dorset based firm https://turnerscoaches.co.uk/ a click.
- Weymouth. Now with a much better road to get to it this glorious golden beach is one of the best in Britain. Check out its incredible harbour and back streets.
- Lyme Regis and Charmouth, home of the Cobb and the Jurassic Coast where Mary Anning first found fossils. This preserved little fishing town is picturesque and traditional.
- The Tolpuddle Martyrs. Proving that Dorset is not all scrumpy and the seaside these noble men fought for workers rights and, eventually, won!
- Portland Bill and Chesil Beach. Portland Bill is one of Britain’s most amazing natural landmarks. A rocky island linked by a causeway it is like a mighty ship trying to sail into Weymouth Harbour. Chesil stretches to the west of it, a natural stoney barrier to the sea.
I’ve only scratched the surface. It is one of England’s finest counties to be sure.
