Sherborne is one of the most beautiful towns in England. It has an abundance of medieval buildings, a superb Abbey, world famous Schools, picturesque Almshouse and two Castles. Every week there is a market by the Conduit (an old monk’s washing place, moved to this site after the Dissolution of the Monasteries).
Sherborne has much to offer visitors. Ideally located on the Dorset and Somerset border it has excellent transport links enabling the town to flourish. There are many organisations, including music and drama and is one of the founding towns of the Douzelage.
Sherborne is a busy business and market centre for a wide area. It has small and specialist businesses and has a delightful shopping centre with a large choice of handcrafted goods and elegant fashions. It has also become an important town in the region for Art and Antique Dealers. Excellent hotels and a variety of other good quality accommodation make Sherborne a fine centre for those wishing to explore the delightful and unspoilt Wessex area of Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire.
