This tiny little sand dune on the Dorset coast is a stunning mile round peninsula and a millionaire’s playground, boasting the Uk’s best beach with fine sand and clean, shallow water. The epitome of stylish resorts, Sandbanks charming promenade features ice-cream kiosks, cafés and crazy-golf. Perhaps ride along the delightful esplanade on the resort’s land train on your day at leisure. We make the most of our time in this beautiful part of England with an excursion exploring Thomas Hardy’s Dorchester and Weymouth. We also discover Salisbury where the medieval cathedral houses an original copy of the Magna Carta.
Dorchester & Weymouth
The picturesque market town of Dorchester was the inspiration for fictional “Casterbridge” in Thomas Hardy’s novels and is home to a statue of the esteemed author. We continue to Weymouth with its charming harbour, golden sands and grand Georgian seafront.
Salisbury is a medieval masterpiece with a magnificent gothic cathedral that has towered over the city for almost eight centuries. One of England’s most handsome cities, its grid-like streets with black and white half-timbered architecture are simply a joy to explore. Perhaps visit the National Trust’s Grade I listed Momposson House with its period artefacts and hidden garden.
