Dorchester is filled with history and plenty of things to do, from walks along the river, to picnics in Borough Gardens, to visiting the many great museums in the town. Brewery Square is the place to be for eateries, bars, cinema and a great atmosphere. Thomas Hardy is one of the towns most famous sons, and you will find many references to him throughout Dorchester, including his cottage birthplace and Victorian townhouse, both of which are now National Trust properties.
