Discover Dorset & the Jurassic Coast

“Weymouth’s long arc of fine golden sand is second to none. The Crown Hotel is the perfect base to discover Dorset; a county of contrasts, offering the very best of countryside, coastline and attractions. Filmmakers, poets and writers have all been captivated by the outstanding beauty of Dorset’s landscape and coastline…and it’s easy to see why!”

Day 2

This morning we visit Abbotsbury Swannery, the only place in the world where you are able to walk through the heart of a colony of nesting Mute Swans spread over a site of some 25 acres. A visit to this beautiful place is considered one of the best places to visit in Dorset. This unique natural wildlife habitat is also popular with film makers and has been used as a location for Harry Potter filming. We spend the afternoon in Dorchester; a town full of character with great places to eat and provides the location for many of the county’s leading museums, including the Dorset County Museum and the Keep Military Museum (entrance fees not included).
