Long known as 'Thomas Hardy country' Dorset has everything from literary trails to Iron Age settlements, old-fashioned seaside resorts to beautiful Jurassic Coastline. Featuring a number of Blue Flag white sand beaches and ease of access from London, Dorset is popular in the UK for quick weekend trips to the sea.
But it is not just a county built around its coastline. Inland it also offers some quintessentially English landscapes, crossed by the chalk ranges of the South Dorset and North Dorset downs, agriculturally fertile valleys in Frome, Stour and the Vale of Blackmore and the famous marble quarries of Purbeck and Portland.
Inhabited since at least 8000BC Dorset's high chalk hills have offered defensive settlements for thousands of years and there are Neolithic and Bronze Age Settlements at almost every turn. In addition there are numerous Iron Age Hill Forts, with Maiden Castle being the most famous and well worth a visit.
The elegant and charming town of Dorchester is built on endless Roman remains and artefacts and there are some excellent sites and museums there. Also worth seeing are the ruins of Corfe Castle and historic sites at Athelhampton and Cranborne Manor and Gardens, as well as Sherbourne Castle, home of Sir Walter Raleigh.
For those looking for something a bit more relaxing, Bournemouth has been dealing in 'laid back' for over two hundred years now. The writer Augustus Granville included Bournemouth in his Book of Spas in 1841 and ever since tourists have been flocking there for the 'medicinal air,' beautiful beaches, stunning gardens and temperate climate.
Now a curious combination of art deco calm, bohemian cafes and numerous old people's homes, it is certainly laid back! For something less sedate, most people head out along the 95 miles of spectacular, untouched coastline, known as the 'Jurassic Coast' for its incomparable selection of Jurassic, Triassic and Cretaceous fossils and now the UK's only natural UNESCO World Heritage site.

Death of the High Street?
The BBC reports that despite councils' attempts to kurb them, the UK's high streets have seen a huge growth in fast food outlets. Could this mark the death knell for the Great British high street, and what can we do about it to halt its decline?
Discrimination by Postcode
You really couldn't make it up, could you? Some of the country's most vulnerable people are missing out on their weekly £25 Cold Weather Payment, just because the system that's in operation is discriminating against them because payments are based on postcode, rather than geographic location.
The Redesign is Underway
Well, the current website was absolutely in dire need of a good redesign - from the ground up. So I set out to pull it all apart and get it up and running again to become the most comprehensive guide to every postcode in the UK. And it's been a long, tough job from start to finish - and quite possibly the biggest project I've ever undertaken.
The Impossible Challenge of Affordability
No wonder the younger generation are getting more and more frustrated with money - new research has revealed that even with a 10% deposit, 25-34 year olds are struggling to afford even the CHEAPEST houses on the market. Is there a solution to the 'impossible challenge'?
