Day 1 After your taxi pick up, we make our way west to Bovington Tank Museum, where we find a unique collection of over 300 vehicles over six halls, with the personal touch of first-hand accounts of those who fought in them. We continue our journey to Weymouth and our hotel.

Day 2 In the morning we visit Dorchester, an historic market town with its roots in Roman times and close associations with Thomas Hardy. We visit Max Gate, the atmospheric Victorian home where Hardy wrote about Tess of The d’Urbervilles and much of his poetry. The rest of the day is free in Weymouth, or join your driver on a scenic drive around Portland Bill.

Day 3 After breakfast, we visit Athelhampton House. The house dates from 1485 and is a magnificent example of early Tudor architecture and shows fascinating interiors with heraldic glass and linenfold panelling. We have included a tour and a soup and sandwich lunch. In the afternoon we head out across the Dorset countryside to Shaftesbury. Walk down the famous ‘Hovis’ Gold Hill if you dare, or take in the glorious views from Park Walk.

Day 4 We leave our hotel after breakfast and travel via Bournemouth with a stop for refreshments. We arrive in the local area in the afternoon, where your taxi will be waiting to take you home.
