  • For a small but historic town where they filmed the early Hovis advert. The museum offers interesting facts and features, certainly worth taking your time to read and absorb and learn something new. Excellent visit if you enjoy really early English history. Not expensive and very friendly staff.
  • A lovely tranquil spot in the middle of Shaftsbury. Contains a small museum and the garden containing the old Abbey ruins. A small reasonable entry fee alot includes an audio guide.
