Places

Clovelly a beautiful ancient town famous for its steep cobbled High Street. It is on the Bristol Channel coast. Lots of listed buildings. The gardens and part of Clovelly Manor are open to the public, but not the house which is privately owned.

Widdicombe, home of Widdecombe Fair.  Remember the song? 

In the Dartmoor National Park and correctly called Widdicombe in the Moor. There is a National Trust shop in the village. There is a very large church for the size of the place which is known as the Cathedral of the Moor. There are stories of ghosts, but the official website  discounts this, but..........

Torquay a delightful seaside resort in the English Riviera on Devon's south coast. Agatha Christie was born in the town. Many attractions in the area.  Wonderful beaches, two are Blue Flag.

Newton Abbot is a bustling market town in the Teign Estuary. Tucker's Maltings is open to the public. Bradley Manor, a National Trust property, is open to the public. Nice and central for the English Riviera and Dartmoor National Park

Budleigh Salterton, a charming town and in the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. On the South West Coastal Path. A pretty pebble beach which is two miles long. Explore Budleigh Salterton with the 3 mile circular walk.

Sidmouth a tourist resort on the channel coast in South Devon. One of the gateways to the Jurassic Coast. It is a popular town for retirees!!! Not surprising, it is such a pleasant place. There are beautiful beaches and plenty of attractions.

Anyone with events in Dorset who would like to list their event here please contact us via the Feedback form, we would love to hear from you. The event should have its own website so that our visitors can find you and obtain more information.

The events in Dorset should be capable of attracting crowds, large village fete size and above, similar to those listed here. Posting events on this page is free.

Our observations show that Travel Wessex's main visitors are those that love walking, cycling, horse riding and other like minded pursuits, but we welcome all attractions as we have many other visitors as well that we love to cater for.

We reserve the right not to include events in Dorset that are not suitable for legal or other reasons.

Why not travel by Coach

If you do decide the leave the car at home and help the environment too, why not go National Express. They run coaches all over the country. Some pretty good fares too.

Just imagine - sit back and relax, no hassling with the traffic!!!

Do you know that you can book on your mobile phone and they will send the ticket as a text!!!!
