The popular county of Dorset includes holiday resorts such as Bournemouth. Its surrounding area is by far the most populous area and it is also the primary holiday destination in Dorset.

Close to Bournemouth is the cosmopolitan town of Poole, with its bustling Quay, some of the best beaches in England and a stunning natural harbour.

Lulworth Cove including the famouse 'Durdle Door' was formed around 10,000 years ago by the massive powers of a river and the sea. It continues to evolve behind a narrow Portland Stone entrance as the softer Purbeck, Wealden, Greensand and Chalk exposures are eroded.

Weymouth is another seaside holiday resort, popular with families because of its safe sandy beach. Dorchester, the county town, is packed full of history and heritage, from Roman relics to the Bloody Assize, the Tolpuddle Martyrs and Thomas Hardy. In the green valleys and wooded hills of the north of the county lies Sherborne, with its famous schools, two castles and magnificent abbey
