This English fair is held at the village of Tarrant Hinton, near Blandford Forum in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside. From small beginnings this annual event has become one of the favoured places for those interested in how people lived, worked and played in bygone years and it is now widely recognised as “THE” National Heritage Show as well as being regarded as the leading show of its type in the World. The spectacle covers an enormous showground, at over 600 acres being one of Europe’s largest outdoor event locations. 2017 sees the show celebrating its 49th year.

After a brisk morning departure south we visit the village of Lyndhurst set in the heart of the lovely New Forest. Towering over the skyline is the
pre-Raphaelite church of St Michael and All Angels where the grave of former Lyndhurst resident Alice Liddell, Lewis Carroll's inspiration for Alice in Wonderland, can be found. Lyndhurst offers a wide range of shops, cosy tea rooms, old world pubs & cafes to discover. Later, we continue to Bournemouth for our 3-night stay.
