A Roman Town

Things To Do

If it's Dorset's history you want to experience then head to Dorchester. The town's extensive history is still visible at every turn and this Dorchester walk is a great way to learn a bit more about its Roman past and the important sites that still remain.

This walk starts at the town pump and includes Dorchester’s most famous historic spots, including Judge Jeffrey’s lodgings, the Roman wall, the famous Thomas Hardy statue and of course the Roman Town House. This example of a Roman town house has been hailed the best in Britain by Tony Robinson, and its intricate mosaics make stopping by a must.

The house is the country's only example of a fully exposed town house from the Roman era, and guided, audio and virtual tours are available to make sure its visitors don't miss a thing. This is an easy walk around the centre of Dorchester so you'll find plenty of places to stop and plot your next section as you go.
