I'm looking for things in the Dorset area to keep the children entertained and also maybe something that isn't going to numb my mind!

Any thoughts of things to do? Please help.

East and the New Forest is on your doorstep
West and Devon is

Old wardour Castle just into Wiltshire

The Tank Museum is fantastic.

'The Dorset Area'? You'll have to narrow it down more than that, OP?

What do your DCs like doing? And you? Are you living in Dorset, or just visiting?

There is an infinite number of 'things to do' in Dorset, really.

Sea life, Dinosaur Museums in Lyme Regis and Dorchester, Monkey World is great, Abbotsbury Gardens, The Lyric Theatre Bridport has the 3 little pigs on.

Just into Devon Donkey Sanctuary and Pecorama.

Markets., the beach, woods, hills, endless fun to be had with wellies, raincoats and a good stick.

Tons and tons to do here!

Our favourites are farmer Palmers, moors valley, corfe, beaches, googlingrandom villages and finding walks to a pub for lunch, brownsea island (but not running at the moment).

Tell us the area and when . .
