Tours and Adventures in Dorchester
Dorchester is more than just a pleasing market town deep in the Dorset countryside. It’s a county town bursting with heritage, where literary giant Thomas Hardy lived and wrote his famous novels in a rolling landscape already rich with Roman history. Ancient dialects, ghostly tales, bustling markets and packed museums all take their place Town Tours which will escort you through centuries of intrigue and culture. And there you will find some really fun activities if you are the adventurous type.
Nestled in a private section of rustic woodland you will find Insight Activities’ shooting and Axe throwing ranges, where anyone can learn the fine arts of Archery, Crossbows and Axe Throwing or even engage in some woodland Archery Tag Combat games.
Thomas Hardy set most of his famous novels in Dorset and you can explore the countryside and villages of Tess of the D’Urbervilles, Far from the Madding Crowd, The Mayor of Casterbridge, Under the Greenwood Tree and The Return of the Native with Alistair’s expert guidance.
