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!

A 10 Star B&B
This guest house is amazing, Perfect is every way. Friendly and helpful owners. The breakfast choice is unbelievable something for everyone whatever their tastes. In walking distance of the town, buses and railway stations. Very near a good choice of eateries for the evening meals. An excellent base for exploring Dorset after a good nights sleep.
