Depart from your home area in the morning travelling to Dorset and arriving late afternoon at the Hotel.
Today our first visit is to Bridport and West Bay, setting for TV's Broadchurch. From here we continue to the historic coastal resort of Lyme Regis, home to the famous Cobb and harbour.
This morning we visit nearby Dorchester, the county town of Dorset and the fictional 'Casterbridge' of Thomas Hardy's novels. After free time here, we head to Weymouth with its fine Georgian seafront and award-winning beach. Be sure to visit the picturesque and traditional 17th century harbour, alive with colour and activity.
Our day begins with a drive to Sherborne, without doubt one of England's most beautiful towns, with an abundance of medieval buildings, a superb Abbey, Almshouse and two castles. From here we make for Shaftesbury, an ancient hilltop town and famous for the cobbled Gold Hill, star of the Hovis adverts.
After breakfast we leave and head for home.
