The historic market town of Wimborne Minster is an enticing blend of old and new; a ‘Fairtrade’ town where high quality modern stores and charming independent boutiques sit side by side in hidden courtyards and pedestrianised squares. The colourful Town Square and attractive High Street offer a diverse mix of clothing, furnishings, gifts, jewellery, crafts, books music, flower and antique shops as well as all those handy food, hardware and everyday stores.
From contemporary coffee shops to cosy tearooms, fine dining restaurants to traditional pubs, from quality local bakers to health food cafes, there is a range of wonderful places to enjoy a relaxing lunch, tempting afternoon tea or delicious evening meal, both indoors and al fresco.
Wimborne’s unique shopping experience is enhanced by its wonderful setting on the picturesque River Allen, with its abundant wildlife. The beautiful twin towers of the Minster Church of St Cuthburga provide an elegant backdrop to the town’s historic architecture. Take a moment out to sit on the serene Minster Green, relax and watch the world go by.
Combine some great shopping with a visit to one or more of the town’s fascinating attractions; discover the area’s rich history at the intriguing Priest’s House Museum with its tranquil walled garden; explore the charming authentic 1/10th scale version of 1950s Wimborne at the Model Town, set in award-winning gardens; catch a show or a film at the vibrant art-deco Tivoli Theatre; enjoy the stunning national exhibitions at Walford Mill Crafts and purchase a unique piece of craftwork; or browse the huge array of stalls at Wimborne Market (Fri, Sat & Sun).
