Sherborne

   One of my favourite parts of the UK remains the Southwest of England. I have fund memories from my school days there. The town is without any doubt one of the most beautiful in England. It has an abundance of medieval buildings, a fantastic Abbey and world renown schools. Its Almshouse is incredibly picturesque and worth exploring. Not too many towns of its size can boast of having two castles.
Although the town can feel like it is located at the end of the world, it is in fact situated on the Dorset and Somerset border and has excellent transport links which has enabled it to flourish. It has an elegant shopping centre with an impressive choice of hand-crafted goods.
The county Dorset which it belongs to is a great place to be especially in the summer months. From history and heritage, to wildlife; activity and adventure holidays and waterports. Almost all it’s country side is protected. The New Forest is also located here and so are a number of seaside resorts. Bridport, Lyme Regis and Bournemouth are some of the best sea towns in the UK. In fact the venue for sailing events for the London 2012 Olympics will be hosted in Weymouth and Portland.
Three of my personal favourite attractions in the region is the Athelhampton’s Tudor Manor House and its world-famous gardens, Abbotsbury Swannery which has over 600 free flying swans, and Weymouth’s Sea Life Park and Monkey World ape Rescue Centre. Some of the best hotels in England also have branches in Southwest England: Thorpe Park Hotel and Spa Breaks In England.
