Dorset County receives an estimated 18 million visitors each year.  With its picturesque coastline, almost entirely designated as a World Heritage Site, making the county idyllic for tourism, visitors from all over the world travel to see the surroundings. The towns of Bournemouth, Poole and Weymouth provide the perfect location for summer holidays, and also host many events throughout the year across the arts, cuisine, entertainment, historical, nautical and literary fields. What makes this county ideal for events is not just its relaxing holiday atmosphere, of which it has plenty but as locals know, the county is also home to some of the most spectacular areas of inland natural beauty as well.
