    Sherborne – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Royal Sherborne
      It was once the capital of the Kingdom of Wessex. The Abbey, founded in 705 AD (with a bell which was donated by Cardinal Wolsey), is the burial place of the elder brothers of King Alfred the Great, King Ethelbert and King Ethelbald.
    2. Tale of Two Castles
      There are/were two castles here although one is now only partially standing. The first was built by Roger de Caen who was Bishop of Sarum until 1139. It was captured during The Anarchy in the 1140’s as it was viewed as “the master-key of the whole kingdom”. In 1645 it was attacked by the New Model Army led by Sir Thomas Fairfax during the Civil War and after a siege was captured and destroyed. Its remains stand in the grounds of the new ‘castle’.
    3. Castle 2.0
      The second castle was built by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1594, has gardens created by Capability Brown and was part of the 15,000 acre Digby Estate. More of a grand house than an actual castle, Raleigh was nothing if not modest so it would be only fitting that he should live in a ‘castle’. The castle and grounds are open to visitors.
    4. Well Schooled
      It’s home to one of England’s most prestigious schools which dates back to 1550. Sherborne School has produced a number of notable actors such as Hugh Bonneville, Jeremy Irons, Jon Pertwee John Le Mesurier, Timothy Cumberbatch (actor and father of Benedict Cumberbatch) and Cecil Day-Lewis (actor and father of Daniel Day-Lewis). Other famous pupils include; Chris Martin (Coldplay), Alan Turing (codebreaker and father of computing), John le Carre (author), Stanley Johnston (politician, father of Boris), Peter Twiss (test pilot, first man to travel over 1,000mph) and Tom Bradby (newsreader).
    5. Girl Power
      Sherborne School for Girls has also had its share of notable names including; Sophie Kinsella (author), Baroness Kate Rock (politician), Tara Palmer-Tomkinson (socialite), Margaret Dix neurologist), Winifred Spooner (aviator) and Princess Elizabeth of Toro (lawyer, member of the Ugandan royal family).
    6. All’s Fair
      Starting Monday the 10th of October, what was originally an agricultural fair, this annual event now features music, sideshows, street food and all kinds of fun with a local flavour.

    About Sherborne

    With two castles (including a home built by Sir Walter Raleigh and gardens by Capability Brown), Sherborne certainly has fine pedigree. It was once the capitol of the Kingdom of Wessex and has been the site of sieges, sackings, festivals and even the tomb of two kings.

    Once a medieval market town, it is now a picturesque location packed with independent shops, great cafes, characterful pubs and is well-kept for locals and visitors to enjoy. There are good amenities, country walks, and access to everything you’ll need to build your new home.

    If it was good enough for Sir Walter…


    There is a leisure centre with a swimming pool and gym, offering both fitness and swimming classes. There are a number of sports pitches as well as a golf club. Three art galleries and a number of antique and furniture shops are lovely places to browse, but if you want to get out for walks, cycling, jogging or with four-legged friends, head to Quarr Local Nature Reserve.


    Sherborne is a rural idyl, there are no motorways, or dual carriageways to disturb the peace, as such motoring reflects the pace of life. The closest large town is Yeovil, a short drive away. The nearest airport can be found at Bristol (31 miles), while trains to London Waterloo are around 2 hours and 10 minutes.
