Dorset

4.2
Celebrated novelist Thomas Hardy lived most of his life in Dorset and used it as a setting in many of his finest works. Today, tourists from around the globe use this region as a setting for their great English adventure. Places to visit in this county feature a variety of landscapes, including steep chalk hills, wide clay valleys, and a series of small but thriving dairy farms. Arguably the most important attraction of this rural region is the enormous Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site stretching for over 155 km (96 mi). A tour along this coastline, with its fossil-rich beaches and secluded bays, is a trip through time. The landforms of the region document the geologic developments that shaped the surface of our planet over hundreds of millions of years. Dorset is in England. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Dorset trip itinerary using our United Kingdom trip planner.
