Blandford Forum


Hotels, B&B's and Self Catering in Blandford Forum

Located on the banks of the River Stour, Blandford Forum is the most complete small Georgian town in Dorset.  In the early 18th century, fires decimated much of the town, and it was largely rebuilt, with wonderful examples of Georgian architecture. There is a Fire Monument in the market place and Blandford Museum shows the story of the rebirth of the town. Surrounding the attractive market place are a variety of independent shops and boutiques, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Nearby National Trust-run Kingston Lacey, built to resemble an Italian Palace, is a must-visit. There are plenty of lovely walks in and around Blandford. The North Dorset Trailway is a walking and cycling path that runs along a dismantled railway line from Stalbridge to Spetisbury via Blandford with views of the River Stour. Blandford Georgian Fayre, a one-day celebration of the town's heritage, is held every year in May. The event includes cultural presentations, stalls, historical re-enactments, music, dancing, and a fun fair. The Great Dorset Steam Fair takes place annually on the late August Bank Holiday weekend.
