    About Dorchester

    About Dorchester

    The country town of Dorset has a rich and rounded history, from its famous authors and sporting sons (Martin Chivers and Harry Rednapp both played for Dorchester FC), to the Roman ruins and iron age hill forts, through to it’s brewing pedigree. Theirs is so much to celebrate and fall in love with. And you can do it for longer, life-expectancy in Dorset is two years greater than the national average.

    Leisure

    Once you’ve finished with your Dorchester removals, and are ready to enjoy the local comforts such as eating, drinking shopping, then Dorchester is perfect for all three. There is a wide variety of cafes, bars and restaurants. And this isn’t a party town, you’re unlikely to see large crowds dancing in the street, what you will find are welcoming venues, great food and drink and a friendly town proud of its heritage.

    Along with a fantastic selection of independent shops and traders, there are two weekly markets. Dorchester market sees over 200 local producers and food artisans bringing their wares to a hungry public. One of the finest markets in the South West, it’s not to be missed.

    History lovers are spoilt for choice with a number of museums in the area as long as sites of historical interest, from Thomas Hardy’s house to iron age hill forts. Dorset Falconry Park, Kingston Maurward Park & Gardens, and Athelhampton House are all excellent days out to add to your Dorchester ‘to-do’ list.

    Transport

    One of the things to love about Dorchester (and there are many) is the distinct lack of motorways. Yep, not a three-lane, snarled up traffic jam anywhere to behold. What you will find is the gentle A37 connecting Lyme Regis and Bournemouth. North to south the A37 runs between Yeovil and Weymouth. Dorchester’s trains run direct to Bath, Bristol and Cardiff. The fastest rail route to London Waterloo takes approximately two hours and forty-four minutes.
