A picturesque and ancient Saxon walled town on the banks of the River Frome, Wareham offers just as much to those wanting to enjoy the outdoors as for those wanting a bit more culture in their lives. Walking around its walls allows one to put themselves in the shoes of a Saxon repelling a Viking attack, on the battlefield of a Civil War skirmish, or in the crowd watching an execution in days gone by. Whilst when sitting on the key, perhaps partaking in some famous Purbeck Ice Cream, daily life feels a world away.
This is the beauty of this wonderful town in the Purbeck countryside: it allows one to explore wherever their mood will take them, and can guarantee they will not be disappointed. If today is a day for exploration and adventure, then a kayak down the river Frome to Poole Bay, a walk on the nearby Ridge, or a trip into London, Poole, or Dorchester may be in order. If it’s a cultural day you’re looking for then be in no doubt there is no shortage of opportunity. Perhaps it’s a day for food, coffee, and relaxation? Wareham has an endless supply of unique and interesting haunts to discover.
