A traditional English county rich in archaeology, unspoilt rural villages and countryside. Nearby attractions include the picturesque and homely Town of Weymouth, Historic Sherborne Castle Built by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1594, Mapperton House and Gardens of Elizabethan origin, home of the Earl and Countess of Sandwich.
