Nestled within the heart of rural Dorset is the charming town of Bridport, a lively market town with a fascinating history, surrounded by patchwork countryside. Within easy reach of Dorset’s finest beaches and the iconic Jurassic Coast, Bridport is a popular destination for luxury family holidays in the South West.

An Introduction to Bridport The pretty market town of Bridport boasts a charming ambrosial setting, lying between Lyme Regis and Dorchester on Dorset’s iconic South Coast. Just over a mile inland, Bridport offers visitors looking to explore the surrounding area the very best of coast and country. The town itself flaunts a collection of historic 18th Century buildings with the town hall and its imposing clock tower defining the main street. With an intriguing history, Bridport has long been associated with the production of rope as the raw materials of flax and hemp were grown in the neighbouring fields. Visitors to Bridport will notice the wide streets previously used to dry the ropes after having been spun nearby. These days, the streets can be found brimming with farmers markets, independent shops and quaint boutiques.

Holidays in Bridport Bridport has long been a popular location for family holidays and romantic escapes beside the sea. Lying within the town’s boundary is West Bay, a small fishing harbour oozing coastal charm. With the English Channel lapping at its shores, this quaint seaside resort is popular for those lusting after sea air, picturesque views and exhilarating activities. Forming part of the Jurassic Coast, this 95 mile stretch of stunning coastline was England’s first World Heritage Site. Harbouring 185 million years of history, fossil hunters should head to nearby Chesil beach to unearth these rare relics. In addition to this unique treasure hunt, fishing and sandcastle building can also be enjoyed. For exhilarating activities, a RIB charter from Lyme Bay is great for those looking to indulge in some on the water sightseeing.
