This charming, rural settlement is probably best known for its beautiful abbey and two imposing castles - the newer of which dates back to 1594 and boasts incredible Tudor landscaped gardens. Sherborne is a great place for sightseeing, or simply having an afternoon stroll along the riverbank, though if you're looking for more activities, a short drive will take you the stunning Stourhead house and gardens. The wonderful Dorset heritage Coast is well worth a visit and just across the Somerset border is the fabulous Fleet Air Arm Museum, situated at Yeovilton. With its displays of historic aircraft – including the Concorde – this trip is interesting for aviation enthusiasts and fans of military history.
