The Jurassic Coast, a 95-mile World Heritage Site stretching west from vibrant Swanage, is a World Heritage Site rich in dinosaur fossils, while gentle river-side communities such as Sturminster Newton offer a chance to walk quiet lanes in rolling countryside famous for cheese. The 1,000 year old ruins of Corfe Castle near Wareham are among the most beautiful in the country, while rural communities such as Blandford Forum offer small-scale market-town charm with stunning Georgian architecture and a feel for quiet locality.
Somerset’s coastal resorts include the gentility of Weston super Mare, and more southerly Burnham-on-Sea, on the edge of the Somerset Levels, a vast, lush plain increasingly popular for cycling and bird-watching.

Fine walking areas include the high ground of Exmoor, and the high rolling hills of the Quantocks, and the Mendips.

Ancient Glastonbury and England’s smallest city, Wells, are hugely popular centres with considerable historic, architectural and atmospheric interest.
