Discover Dorchester, Dorset, South West England, UK

The town of Dorchester lies 8 miles inland from the coastal town of Weymouth and is well worth a visit if you are exploring the area. The past meets the present here, with some of Englands best preserved Roman ruins standing right next door to a bustling high street. Europes largest Iron Age hill fort - Maiden Castle - is just two miles outside the town.
