Dorset: the best town(s) in England

Bournemouth from the air

LenT spoiled me with a weekend away in Poole and Bournemouth in Dorset.

I am disappointed that we only discovered Dorset 1 month before we’re going home. This is now my favourite place in England. It beats the previous winner, Cornwall, by a long shot. There aren’t any waves to speak of, but the beaches are fantastic – almost as nice as in SA – and the water is lovely. The towns (I’m not sure where they stop/start) are the cleanest towns that I’ve been to in the UK. The people also look much more healthy than in London. We loved it so much, that if we didn’t go home in 4 weeks, we would have seriously looked at moving there.
