New Voyage Privé —
Carefully selected by our experts especially for you
Your Destination —
The Jurassic Coast is England’s first World Heritage Site, ranking it alongside the Grand Canyon and the Great Barrier Reef as one of the natural wonders of the world. The Dinosaur Museum and Dorset County Museum in Dorchester feature displays on the famous coastline and its fossils when you’ve seen it for yourself. The County Museum also boasts the largest collection of Thomas Hardy artefacts in the world and documents his life and work in a special exhibition.
The beaches at Charmouth and Lyme Regis are great for a bit of fossil hunting – you might find the next tyrannosaurus rex! Dorset boasts many ancient sites, from Iron Age fortresses to Roman amphitheatres, and don’t miss out on a visit to one of West Dorset’s best known residents, the 180-foot Cerne Giant!
There’s also the Tolpuddle Martyrs Museum just east of Dorchester which recreates the tragic story of the six men who attempted to create a trade union for local labourers and were tried and sentenced in 1834 to deportation to Australia. With an abundance of museums, castles, gardens, houses and walks to explore, Dorset is a unique area filled with prehistoric, historical and literary interest.
