Sit back and relax on board our coach as we make our way south to Dorset. After a convenient stop for lunch en-route we arrive at our hotel during the afternoon.


Today, we visit Bridport and West Bay. West Bay was the setting for TV's 'Broadchurch'. From here we continue to the historic coastal resort of Lyme Regis. Close to the Devon border Lyme Regis is home to the famous Cobb and harbour (Please note that access to the town and promenade from the coach park is via a steep incline and may prove challenging for those with reduced mobility).


This morning we visit nearby Dorchester, the county town of Dorset, the fictional 'Casterbridge' of Thomas Hardy novels. After free time here we head to Weymouth, with its fine Georgian seafront and award-winning beach. Be sure to visit the picturesque harbour, alive with colour and activity.


Our day begins with a drive to Sherborne, one of England's most beautiful towns, with an abundance of medieval buildings, a superb Abbey, Almshouse and two castles. From here we make our way to Shaftesbury, an ancient hilltop town and famous as the home to cobbled 'Gold Hill', star of the Hovis adverts (The steep access to Gold Hill may prove challenging for those with reduced mobility).


We commence our homeward journey, arriving home during the afternoon.
