Area Details


Sherborne is a pretty, historic market town in Dorset. It is on the edge of the Blackmore Vale which commands the most spectacular views. Full of ancient and beautiful buildings, Sherbourne Abbey, and two Castles, there is always something to see. The town itself has a great selection of independent and unique shops. There is a good choice of friendly cafes and restaurants in the town. Sherbourne hosts "Pack Monday" every Monday in October. This closes off four of Sherborne's streets and fills them with food stalls and local traders while on the edge of town is a funfair.

Sir Walter Raleigh built Sherborne Castle and Gardens, a stunning castle in stunning surroundings. There are 42 acres of gardens and a 50 acre lake, the gardens themselves are now Grade I listed. The Castle holds a variety of events throughout the year including firework extravaganza, country fairs, classic car rallies, and even wine fairs. Sherborne Abbey is today one of England's most beautiful parish churches. Visitors come for many reasons, some the music, some the bells with the heaviest peal of eight bells in the world. Most visit for the amazing architecture including the amazing fan-vaulted ceiling. Sherborne has another castle, this time lying in ruin, but with fascinating history and great views over the surrounding villages.

Visit the 15th Century Almshouse or go fossil hunting in the Jurassic cliff faces of Quarr Nature Reserve. The Fleet Air Museum and Haynes Motor Museum are a short drive away. Minterne Gardens is stunning, explore these beautiful, tranquil settings and relax with refreshments in the cafe.
