If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Dorchester Abbey Museum

The major theme of the museum is evidence of continuity and change in Dorchester, its neighbourhood from 2500BC to the present day. Emphasis is on Dorchester as a centre of human habitation through the ages, with the Abbey as a living witness of our national heritage and a centre of Christian and community life. The museum building itself dates from 14th and 15thC.
