The ancient walled town of Wareham, Dorset retains so much charm from bygone eras it’s surprising they haven’t suspended it in aspic. The old brewery building sits on the harbour, a lovely area to grab a bite, or cold drink and watch the world go by… Slowly, this is Wareham and there’s no rush. An old bakery serves delicious traditional cakes and pastries and steam trains puff their way past on their way to Swanage. A town rich in history with some great independent shops and lively event calendar.
There are a number of larger attractions in the area such as The Tank Museum, Monkey World and Farmer Palmer’s. If you’re looking to keep up (or start) a fitness regime then there’s a leisure centre as well as miles of incredible countryside to go explore.
In July Wareham Carnival kicks off with a bang including a parade, fireworks and music by the Quay. There is also a music festival with bands playing on the quayside, the Town Hall and the town’s pubs.
With the River Frome and the fabulously named River Piddle sitting either side of the town, Wareham is a great place for pleasure boats, giving access to Swanage Bay and Sandbanks. The town has a train station for commuters to nearby Bournemouth which is also the location of the closest airport.
