Bridport has an rich history, the town has been rather regal over the years. Charles II stayed here (hiding from Cromwell’s troops) and King Alfred fortified it and made it one of his major burghs. King John gave the town its charter and ‘Brideport’ also features in the Doomsday Book.
Today it’s a funky, forward thinking market town with plenty of independent, ethically minded, eco-friendly stores. There are a number of local events through the year encompassing arts, literature, food and drink.
Surrounded by picturesque countryside, great pubs and restaurants and with a high number of listed buildings, Bridport is a wonderful town to call home.
Small but mighty, for town of its size Bridport offers so much to see and do. There is an art centre, theatre, library, cinema and an excellent museum. Foodies are spoilt for choice with an abundance of independent producers and stores, farm shops, a food festival, beer festival, wine store, and even a local brewery.
If you’re looking to burn off the calories, there are a number of local clubs and societies to socialise, get fit or learn a new skill. And with no end of country walks, coastal paths and cycle routes, you really can get out and about to enjoy the Dorset air.
