Dorset, Southwest England: Things to See and Do

Dorset is a beautiful county in The West Country (Southwest England) The towns of Dorchester and Lyme Regis offer excellent, but very different places to stay and attractions such as Monkey World provide a good day out. The counties of Somerset and Devon are nearby and can be visited easily in a day and Dorset also makes a good place to stop on the way down to Cornwall in the far southwest of England.

Here are my travel reviews and articles about these destinations, photos and recommendations.

      Very comprehensive lens - and of course, as always your photos and works at Zazzle are wonderful! Sounds like a great place to visit.

      This lens is awesome. I love it. I am going to tell my editors on my Thai News website to write something about this lens and probably feature it.

      I will comment here again once we do.

      Great Work
