One of the best things about the UK is the wealth of things to do and see in a small area, in this case that surround Dorchester, the county town of Dorset. One day included natural beauty, an historic home, gardens, heritage towns and an Iron Age fort.
Hardy Monument (National Trust)
A 22m high memorial to Vice-Admiral Hardy, Flag-Captain of HMS Victory at Trafalgar, rather than Thomas Hardy. Wonderful if very windy views across the Dorset countryside and toward Chesil Beach.
