Welcome to Wareham in the beautiful county of Dorset

Ancient town and former royal borough, the charming market town of Wareham is a veritable delight wherever you look at any time of the year.

Between the rivers Frome and Piddle, the attractive gateway to the Isle of Purbeck was a major port until the Middle Ages.

Now a thriving market town, happily combining the old and the new for locals and visitors alike.
