Whether you are here to work, shop, or visit our many attractions, you will find much to admire in the historic market town of Dorchester, the county town of Dorset since 1305.
Visitors find a town with one foot in the past and another firmly in the future, with some of this country’s best preserved Roman ruins moments away from a thriving high street and one of the most exciting current retail and residential re-development projects in the UK at Brewery Square.
If you’re interested in shopping in Dorchester, take a look at our shop finder, a unique way to plan your shopping trip before you set out.
Then, after a hard day’s exploring, spend the night in the comfort and pleasing surroundings of one of our hotels, guest houses or B&Bs.
Dorchester is a great place to do business. We have well over 200 businesses in our Business Directory. Please use the open text search to find what you want.
