Want to spend time exploring the old market town of Blandford and wondering what there is to see and do?
Here’s all you need to know to get the most from your time exploring this unique Georgian gem with its stunning architecture, charming parish church and wonderful market place.
A great place to browse, shop and explore.
Located on the banks of the River Stour, Blandford Forum is the most complete, small Georgian town in England and is located in the north of Dorset.
In the early 18th century, fires decimated much of the town, but it was largely rebuilt and is a wonderful example of Georgian architecture.
Most town centre buildings date from this early period and were designed by the Bastard brothers, noted architects of the time.
The Fire Monument in the Market place acknowledges its fiery past and a visit to the Blandford Museum tells the intriguing story of the rebirth of the town.
Surrounding the attractive Blandford Forum market place is a variety of independent shops and boutiques, cafes, restaurants and pubs.
For a local 'tipple' pay a visit to the Hall and Woodhouse Brewery and shop.
The Great Dorset Steam Fair takes place annually on the late Bank Holiday weekend and is an amazing, fun and action packed day out for all the family.
It’s the World’s largest heritage and cultural event and is a must for anyone interested in how people lived, worked and played in bygone years.
With over 2,000 exhibits including an old time steam funfair, it’s a huge, colourful festival that celebrates our national heritage.
Blandford Fashion Museum, located in Lime Tree House, a beautiful Georgian building, contains a wonderful collection of fashions dating from the early 18th century to the 1970's and includes day wear, evening wear, wedding dresses and accessories.
Nearby Kingston Lacy is a lavish family home in rural Dorset countryside, built to resemble an Italian Palace.
There’s plenty to see, from grand, beautifully detailed carvings, to intimate family souvenirs and even strange curiosities such as an ‘I owe you’ note from a king.
See paintings by Rubens, Van Dyck, Titian and Brueghel and the largest private collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts in the UK.
Enjoy a summer picnic on the lawn or let the children run wild in the nearby play areas. There’s plenty of space to explore on this 8,500 acre estate.
If you want to get out and about there are plenty of lovely walks in and around Blandford.
The North Dorset Trailway is a splendid walking and cycling path that runs along a dismantled railway line from Stalbridge to Spetisbury via Blandford with regular views of the River Stour.
