There are seasonal dates throughout the year that we all love to celebrate from Valentine's Day to New Year's Eve.
Why not mark the next special occasion with a break in Dorset this year?
The perfect romantic getaway requires the perfect backdrop, and there are fewer places prettier than Dorset.
Strolls along the coast, forest escapes, picturesque villages to explore and grand houses await you in this beautiful county.
Add to that some romantic experiences tailored for two and some fantastic restaurants and you’ve got yourself the perfect Valentine’s escape.
At Easter time in Dorset, it’s great fun to join an egg hunt, especially in one of our National Trust venues or stately homes.
Many of Dorset’s attractions put on special Easter events so you’ll be guaranteed a great day out wherever you choose to go.
The arrival of Spring means warmer days and longer evenings so make the most of the change in the weather and enjoy some outdoor activities with the family.
Mother’s and Father’s Day
Dorset is a wonderful place to treat your Mum or Dad.
For Mum in March, there’s plenty of delightful places to take her for lunch or afternoon tea and many hotels have special Mother’s Day packages to make her feel deservedly special.
In June, it’s Father’s Day and you can really push the boat out for Dads in Dorset with steam train rides, car museums, RIB rides and more!
Christmas & New Year
Begin your Christmas celebrations in style in December by inhaling the smell of mince pies and mulled wine at one of Dorset’s festive markets.
Don’t miss a magical carol service in Sherborne Abbey, Christchurch Priory or Wimborne Minster and laugh uproariously with the kids at a traditional pantomime
At New Year, you can guarantee a colourful start to the year ahead by dressing up in Weymouth or taking the plunge at the Lyme Lunge!
