31 fun things to do in Dorset

If you’re looking for a break away from the hustle and bustle of the city, then you’ve found the perfect place – Dorset has some of England’s most stunning countryside, without a single city in sight! 

There’s always something memorable to see close by in Dorset, whether its golden sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs to beautiful coastlines. This makes it one of the best places in England to enjoy outdoor activities – challenge yourself to something new with this exciting coasteering experience, or explore the woodlands from the treetops at this high rope park.

Dorset has some fantastic museums, but being home to the UNESCO-listed Jurassic Coast, you can find your own fossils on Dorset’s beaches with this fun Fossil hunting experience!

Fossil hunting isn’t the only fun thing to do with the kids though! Try these family friendly activities, from these fantastic Animals and Wildlife experiences such as the Monkey World Rescue Centre, to the historical Corfe Castle.
