Whether staying with friends and family or living locally, there is plenty to do and enjoy in Poundbury and the nearby county town of Dorchester.
Poundbury is blessed with a myriad of pathways between stunning architecture and across the different open spaces we all enjoy so much. You will discover small parks, attractive squares and the vast open space of The Great Field, all of which are being used and enjoyed.
Walking and taking in the development is a favourite past-time for those exercising vigorously or just taking a casual stroll.
To find all the shops and businesses in Poundbury you will need to explore the many squares where retail and offices blend into residential. With parking free on streets and in dedicated areas, accessing businesses and shops is easy. For the ultimate Poundbury experience, getting about on foot is what we’d recommend.
The county town of Dorchester is within easy walking distance from Poundbury with further shopping, entertainment and restaurants. There is a significant multi-million pound refurbishment of the Dorset Museum under way and many other historical walks and more beautiful open spaces, like Borough Gardens.
