January is a quiet time in Dorset when the days are short and, even in our mild climate, the days are cold.  If you like bracing winter walks along the beach or over the hills, then there are still things to enjoy.  What better than descending from the hills in scarves and muddy boots to a warm welcome and a roaring fire in one of our excellent village inns?

Year Round

If it's cold and wet outside, why not visit the county museum where you can while away a whole day studying fascinating exhibitions and eating in the excellent museum cafe. Learn about the history of Dorset, from prehistoric fossil collections to Thomas Hardy and everything in between.
