Dorchester is the country town of Dorset, situated a few miles inland of the famous Jurassic Coast. Lots of history to discover the from the Romans nearly 2000 years ago, to the life of Thomas Hardy. There are many museums in this little town, infact I have not been anywhere there are so many in such a small area. I have attempted to cover most of them throughout my page.
