Dorset, the county of the Jurassic Coast, Bournemouth and Weymouth.   The county of Thomas Hardy, the Great Dorset Steam Fair and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch make a delightful trio of towns along the south coast of Dorset. Weymouth and Portland are the start or finish of the Jurassic Coast. Dorchester is the capital of the county - Thomas Hardy is its favourite son.  Maiden Castle is  not far away. Sherborne, with its Abbey is a lovely spot. Dorset is a county of beautiful farmland and small lanes that just say come and look. What about visiting the Great Dorset Steam Fair at Tarrant Hinton for something different and interesting.

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.
