After a final tasty breakfast it is sadly time to make our way home. After stopping for a coffee/lunch break, we continue homewards.
Located on the banks of the River Stour, Blandford Forum is the most complete, small Georgian town in England and is located in the north of Dorset. In the early 18th century, fires decimated much of the town, but it was largely rebuilt and is a wonderful example of Georgian architecture. The Fire Monument in the Market place acknowledges its fiery past and a visit to the Blandford Museum tells the intriguing story of the rebirth of the town. Surrounding the attractive Blandford Forum market place is a variety of independent shops and boutiques, cafes, restaurants and pubs.
If you’re searching for a town that’s full of character, then Dorchester won’t disappoint. Big name stores, chef-led restaurants, cafes, bars and bistros, museums, attractions, glorious gardens, river walks and a Roman Town House, you’ll find plenty to see and do in Dorset’s county town, a place long associated with the writer and poet Thomas Hardy because Dorchester is the ‘Casterbridge’ featured in his most famous novel.
