Living in Dorchester

Home to the birthplace of the Victorian novelist and poet Thomas Hardy - a beautiful and secluded cottage where you can discover more about the Hardy's beginnings - Dorchester has much to tell of the life and work of this literary master. Follow the Thomas Hardy Trail to find out more about his education, see delightful collections of Hardy memorabilia and admire some of the many Dorchester buildings associated with his novels and characters.

Dorchester's many museums lead you from the prehistoric era to modern day. The Terracotta Warriors Museum, the Dinosaur Museum, The Roman Town House and The Keep Military Museum are just some of the many fascinating museums and sites the town has to offer.

If you like a good mystery, Maumbury Rings is a must see. Having stood for nearly five thousand years, the original function of this monument is still unknown, although several theories do exist. Come and discover the henge for yourself and put your own theory to the test. And, in summer, enjoy one of the many free music events hosted there, including the Dorchester Arts Festival, battle re-enactments and even open air performances of Shakespeare.

For a spot of shopping or to catch up with friends, head to Brewery Square. The historic Dorchester Brewery site has been converted into a cosmopolitan hub of eateries, leisure facilities and independent businesses. Enjoy great food, fabulous shopping and spectacular events in this cultural and retail hotspot.

Community - McCarthy Stone

Moving into our new home has changed our lives completely for the better. We can go out into Dorchester to do more things and it's more secure than the bungalow we were living in before, which was quite isolated. It's great to have people around.
