There’s plenty to explore in Dorset and on Dorset Camper. So take a wander and don’t forget to let us know what you think. Get in touch and tell us your views of the web site, of Dorset or of places you’ve been within it.
And if there’s somewhere you think should be on this site, why not tell us about it or invite us to come and see it for ourselves!
We’ve already tried and tested a range of places, attractions and activities throughout Dorset and just over the border. We know not everywhere we’ve been will suit every taste, but that’s the beauty of Dorset. It is definitely not one-size-fits all!
If you come to Dorset for the beaches and coast, we’ve listed some of the key places you might want to see. We haven’t listed every beach and cove, but we’re working on it!
Meanwhile those with an interest in history ancient, modern or natural should find sights and activities to energise and entertain minds young and old on the “Attractions” and “Places to See” pages. Some places and activities we’ve listed are “pay to enter”, but there’s also masses you can do for free!
Dorset Camper is a work in progress. So much is happening in Dorset with so many things to do, it could never be anything else! We like it that way. We hope you do too!
