Dorset offers its visitors a wide choice of lovely beaches. From the seaside resort of Weymouth in the east to the Regency town of Lyme Regis, there's a splendid choice including the long shingle banks of Chesil Beach (taking in the world-famous Swannery at Abbotsbury), Studland Bay, peaceful Charmouth and picturesque Lulworth Cove. Just think of a day spent both fishing in rockpools on a beach for minute sea-creatures (Kimmeredge Bay is particularly recommended), and then turning to the cliffs on this famour Jurassic coastline where rockfalls often reveal fossils although you're no longer allowed to go digging for them.

There's an equally appealing choice of attractions to enjoy away form Dorset's south coast beaches. Why not spend an afternoon viewing the Purbeck countryside from the windows of a heritage steam train on the Swanage Railway. Catch your train at Corfe and while there, visit the magnificent ruins of Corfe Castle high on  hill above the town. Head west to Bovington where you'll find the (seriously) best and most entertianing of tank museums aor the nearby Monkey World which is as educational as its primates are adorable.

Inland Doset is as pretty as the names of its villages imply. How an you resist a holiday in a county with place names such as  Fifehead Magdalen, Gussage All Saints, Hazelbury Bryan, Lytchett Matravers, Piddletrenthide, Sixpenny Handley, Toller Fratrum and Tolpuddle (home of the Tolpuddle Martyrs).

Many of its towns boast splendid vernacular architecture (usually accomanied by quaint tea rooms) as visitors to Blandford Forum or Gold Hill in Shaftesbury, the latter a location for a famous Hovis Bread advert in the 70's, will readilly testify.

Other attractions well worth a visit include the Model Town at Wimbourne and, at the end of August, the Great Dorset Steam Fair near Blandford Forum which is so large you'll need more than one day to work your way around it.
