Visitors to Dorset can enjoy many first class tourist attractions and activities, so it’s not surprising that our 'Things to Do' section generates the largest proportion of page views and user searches on the Visit Dorset website. This growing interest from visitors has resulted in a boom in new and exciting activity providers across the county, with over one hundred businesses already benefitting from the marketing and support that we deliver to our business members.

The 'Things to Do' content provides the ideal environment for our members to promote their businesses whilst connecting with potential customers who are actively planning their Dorset itinerary. 

We have several Visit Dorset membership levels so you can choose a package to suit your own business needs:

Bronze: A simple, great value marketing solution. Here's an example of a Bronze membership.

Silver: Showcase your attraction or activity with this enhanced website listing that will appear above Bronze in website search results and show within “what’s nearby” from other local businesses. Here's an example of a Silver membership.

Gold: These prominent listings will appear above Silver in website search results and also within the featured section on the Things to Do landing page, category pages (e.g. family friendly) and Town specific landing pages. Here's an example of a Gold Membership.

Platinum:  For maximum exposure across the Visit Dorset website, Platinum listings appear above Gold in search results, within the featured sections on the Things To Do, category pages and Town pages, and additionally within the featured section on the Visit Dorset homepage. Here's an example of a Platinum Membership.
