The county town of Dorchester is steeped in history enjoying a central position along the Jurassic Coastline and also some of the county's most noted period architecture, all set amongst a beautiful rural countryside. Dorchester offers a plethora of shopping and social facilities including a cinema, County museum, leisure centre, Borough Gardens and a choice of many excellent public houses and restaurants. The town has two main employers, namely the Dorset County Hospital and the Dorset County Council. There are major train links to London Waterloo and Bristol Temple Meads and regular bus routes to adjoining towns.
