Dating back to 880AD Shaftesbury is a quaint and attractive town with historic buildings, modern shops and cafes, great restaurants and bars, nestled in some of the most spectacular countryside. The town formed its routes thanks in part to the Abbey built by Alfred the Great and presided over by his daughter, the first abbess. Today the town has wealth of independent stores and is ideally suited to explore the many villages and places of outstanding natural beauty in the area.
Shaftesbury boasts two museums, a large number of architecturally interesting and listed buildings as well as parks and scenic walks. There are also festivals, events and markets throughout the calendar.
The A350 runs just to the east of the town connecting with the A303, with routes to the South West and London, before heading on to the picturesque town of Warminster. Driving south the road leads to Poole and routes on to Bournemouth and Southampton. Shaftesbury no longer has a train station (although there has been murmurings for the route to be reopened) and the nearest station is in Gillingham, a 15-minute drive.
