Find a shop or business
Dorchester is a vibrant town for sightseeing and shopping but also a fantastic centre for visiting the area! Visit Dorchester’s museums and shops, walk the walks, drink great coffee, eat great food and take trips to the Jurassic coast.
Visitors will find a town with one foot in the past and another firmly in the future, with some of this country’s best preserved Roman ruins moments away from a thriving high street and one of the most exciting current re- tail and residential re-development projects in the UK at Brewery Square.
