Dorchester's Newest Attraction

Friday 11 May 2018

Shire Hall

Dorchester's newest heritage attraction had its grand opening on 1st May. The Shire Hall is where the Tolpuddle Martyrs were held and tried, and Thomas Hardy was a magistrate here. The refurbishment of the courtroom, cells and public spaces has been very successful, by all accounts.

We're looking forward to visiting soon ourselves, and will let you know what we think!

Guest Reviews

Visited Dorchester last weekend for a Christening and booked in to Aquila Heights without looking at reviews just on webpage description. The welcome, service, room and food were simply the best we have experienced. Thankyou Derek and Wendy - wonderful hosts.
