Dorset

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.
