The museum on Gold Hill was interesting and had very helpful and friendly staff. Not much else to see in town though...

Nice little town on the hill but this cottage is actually just south of there in Fontmell Magna, which is a quintessential English village complete with thatched houses, pub and shop. About 45 min from the sea at Studland Bay and Lulworth Cove.
