While there is no rail line, there is a good bus service connecting Blandford with towns like Bournemouth, Poole and Salisbury.
News – The Blackmore Vale is the best source of local news, events and general ‘happenings’.

An ancient market town, Blandford has been trading since before the Romans arrived with their fancy sandals and clean water. The town still has a thriving market and has switched focus to the purity of beer thanks to the hugely popular Hall & Wodehouse Brewery (much supported in the area, and locals do their bit to help ‘research’ any new brews).
After a series of devastating fires that decimated the town, a pair of famous architectural brothers gave Blandford a whole new look, and the current, impressive Georgian architecture that gives the town a timeless feel. There are good shops, good travel links, plus miles of countryside and a keen foodie culture. What’s not to love?!?
The town is very proud of its roots and holds a Georgian street fair in May, with a fun fair, stalls, entertainment, street food, stalls and more. If you have artistic flair you can view or contribute to the many Art Society events held through the year. If music is your thing, the Teddy Rocks music festival is an annual event raising money for local charities.
There’s also a museum, fashion museum, the Great Dorset Steam Fair attracting thousands to the area and a golf course. Phew!
Sitting on the compass points of the A350 and A354 crossroads, the town centre is protected by a recent bypass. Blandford Forum doesn’t have a train station but there are good bus routes connecting the town with the Dorset coast and across to cities like Salisbury. Both the M27 and M3 are within easy striking distance giving access to the South East and London.
