Shops will be open late and the Corn Exchange Craft Fair will be from 4pm to 8pm, so lots of chances to buy those Christmas presents.

Lots more events!!! Of course Santa will be there in the Wessex FM grotto bus from 6:45pm
There is often quite good weather during October and events all over Wessex continue apace. In Dorset Fairs and Carnivals continue. November brings the Fireworks that everyone loves. Of course December we are busily shopping amidst all the decorations.
Swanage is a delightful seaside resort not far from Bournemouth. It is right on the tip of east Dorset.
Poole is of course next door to Bournemouth with its own ambience. It is both a tourist resort and a busy port.
Gillingham, an ancient area, is Dorset's most northerly town near the county boundary and in the Blackmore Vale.
Studland - great beaches and popular for bird watching. Very expensive to buy property there! Makes a great place to visit.
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.

It's Carnival Time
Shaftesbury Carnival 1st October 2016
Gillingham Carnival will be held on 8th October 2016.
There are some delightful cottages around the county. Probably one near where you would love to stay.
Want a cute car? Large car? Small car? Whatever you need you will find it here. You will probably find your favourite car hire firm here and Car Rentals do not add a penny to their price for looking all over for you!
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!!!!
Virgin Trains is an excellent main line railway.
