with many Georgian buildings interspersed with more modern structures. One of the town’s
few remaining Tudor houses has been well-preserved and offers guided tours in the
summer months. New Bond Street, St Thomas Street and St Mary Street form a large
pedestrian area bursting with spacious modern shops and occasional street performances.
Wednesday 29th: We leave after breakfast visiting Lyme Regis and West Bay. Our return
journey takes us along the Jurassic Coast, across the Chesil Causeway to the Isle of
Portland with breathtaking views.
Thursday 30th: Today we travel the short distance to Dorchester. A delightful market town
filled with some of the strangest and most interesting museums in England: the award
winning Dinosaur Museum, the Tutankhamun Exhibition (a spectacular re creation of
Tutankhamun’s tomb and treasures), the Terracotta Warriors Museum, the Dorset County
Museum boasting the largest Thomas Hardy collection in the world, the Dorset Teddy Bear
Museum. An ideal place for a cream tea.
